    Default What yall think i shoud do?

    hey everyone, this is the first time ive posted anything.
    i have a 2004 black silverado extended cab z71, its basically stock except for some sidesteps.
    i am wanting to put some new wheels and tires on it, and was wanting to know what some wheels everyone thinks would look good on it, i prefer black, cause im not too crazy about chrome, but maybe black wheels with some chrome in them?
    then was also thinking about putting the SS front bumper on it, and blacking it out, would that look good or should i keep the chrome bumpers?



    would really appreciate the help.
    thanks

    Welcome to the club. I think black whhels would look good, I'm thinking of putting a black wheel on my truck. Alot depends on what "Look" you want, off-road, street look or a "Mall Cruiser".

    Welcome to the club. I think black rims would love good. Personally I would go for BMF wheels ( http://www.bmfwheels.com/wheels.html ) I love the look of them on a black truck. But I am not really a fan of the whole blacked out look so I would keep the chrome bumper with a black grill and a chrome bowtie, IMO.

    AmericanRacingWheels ATX series has a new wheel called the Ledge that comes in black teflon. I like it.

    Don't like black wheels, and you need to decide what look, off-road or street because the SS bumper won't look right on an off road truck. If you do go with black wheels at least consider a polished lip to break up the monotony of all the black.

    welcome to the club!! i agree with adam have a lip of something else in the wheel if you get a black one, not only will you break up the all black but i think it looks sick if you get the right looking wheel
