I had a car once with painted steel rims and a hub cap that looked like a bottle cap. I replaced those puppies. But when you have a good looking set of rims, it does not make sense to me to get new ones. Well, unless their age starts to show and looking at your truck starts to remind you of the view you get walking the dog.86 911 Porsche Carrera

i gota cote stockers, aftermarket ones that ive ever liked were real spendy, and I love the rims on my truck, and the 18 inch 5 spokes you have look awsome with those tires. spend the money you would on the rims on other goodies. like a super charger!!!!

Tires/Rims: Stock rims and tires for now

I do like the stock rims but I know many aftermarket rims that look awesome on a lifted truck like yours so 10" or 12" wide rims will look good but I would go for chrome2002 Chevy Silverado & 1995 Ford Bronco

Aftermarket, and black to match your accessories. The stockers look nice, but I would worry about the width of the wheel vs. the width of your tires. Plus IMO wide tires don't look right on narrow wheels...they look much better on a x10 or even a x12.

I've been thinking about throwing bigger tires on my stock 16's, but I have to think the Mass way and get 2 sets. Mass laws suck, cant even lift your truck over 3" without it being a problem
