    Default Can't decide on wheels/rims

    I can't decide on the wheel/rims below for my Sliverado 2002 half-ton 4x4 red truck. I currently have
    the Goodyear Conquest AT LT 265/75 R16 tires on my truck (Tire Size 16": Bolt Patttern 6 on 5.5). It's of course not been lifted.

    Below are the choices I'm looking at. I want the most durable Wheels Whether there Polished, Clear Coat or Black Teflon I want them not to chip or have problems. I also want them to look good. Here's a couple I like.

    Please help decide or a suggestion. I live in weather where we really only have 3 months of summer (Pocatello, Idaho) so I'm assuming they would be exposed to a lot of salt. I don't use my truck off road, just for camping and hunting maybe 2 to 3 times a year.

    My concern is if they will hold up in the winter. I know the teflon will from what I heard. Do others have either on of these rims if so let me know your experience and show some pictures please.
