I need help choosing new wheels!
Hey everyone, I have a 2003 GMC Sierra z71 ext cab, and I'm looking to get new wheels along with a small 2 inch leveling lift. I do off road a lot, since I am in Georgia.. So I want something that is going to be able to handle a good beating, but still look really good when I clean them up. Also, my truck is white, and I would like to go with gloss black wheels. I just can't decide on which ones would look the best without sacrificing performance. If anyone has any photos of their white trucks from my era with black wheels that would really help.

To be honest I don't really like the street look on them. I want something with a little more off road spunk. Thanks for the reply though!
Your truck looks really nice with them

American Racing Thugs, they have a teflon coating so everything just beads off of them.
Picture is from another member's truck.

I have Cragar soft 8's on my truck, cheap at ~$65 each. Also check out the XD Hoss, XD Addict, American Racing Mojave and Pro Comp Rock Crawlers. They're all good looking off road-style wheels IMO:

Thanks for the help guys, these are all sick. I just bought exhaust so It'll be a while before I can get em and some Nitto Trail Grapplers to go with em. I really like the look of those ATX wheels, and the AR Thugs. I wish there was a way to look at all these with some mud tires actually on my truck..
