Looking for some good rims
I have never shopped for any before so I dunno which brand is good and which is trash
I'm looking for a factory size rim (Z71 size which I believe is 265/75R/16) in either all black or black and chrome
I'm interest in a 5 spoke design but will look at what ever you guys post up
budget I would say maybe $200 per rim2004 Chevy Silverado w/ 5.3L V8 / Z71 / Shorty
Would rather be going too fast then too slow:out:

XD Rockstars (or some of the other wheels in the XD series)
There are a few different wheels that you seem to see a lot throughout the forum. Go through some of the picture threads (like the Black Truck picture thread [it has the most posts]) and look at some of the wheels in the pictures. when you find one you like, check out the poster's signature so that you can see what wheels his truck is wearing. Since there are so many different brands of wheels out there, that's going to be the best way for you to browse different styles.
When it comes time to shop for the actual wheels, you should be looking for 6 lug wheels probably 18"x9 if I'm correct (someone may correct me on the stock size).

But if I can go up to 17" then that opens a lot more options
