Thread: Help with RIMS?

  1. #1

    Default Help with RIMS?

    Wanted some feedback to help me decide on which rims to leave on my truck. The first pic is of a truck at a dealer that has the factory rims my truck came with. The second pic is my truck with the aftermarket AR rims I had from a previous truck.

    Which ones would you choose?

    Thanks all opinions appreciated.

    Honestly neither of them looks good on that style of truck, the wheels are too rounded and the truck is too boxy to pull off that style. There are a 1,000,000,000,000 types of wheels for these trucks on the market today, I would look else where for something a little better than that.

    I have to go with trplxl2 on this one...but if i had to choose... I like the factory rims.. .the aftermarket ones have too thin of a spoke for a truck IMO... especially with brake drums in the rear instead of rotors... I could see it working if the truck was 4 wheel disk brakes.. but like i said...this is my personal opinion...
