    Lightbulb Getting new rims and tires soon..

    I am planning on getting new rims and tires soon. What should I go with? My truck is two tone, dark grey on top tan on bottom. I was thinking black motometals or a set of black xd rims just not sure which ones? I saw a truck that looked just like mine on this site for may 2011 rotm on the first page. The guys name is Cohen. He had the 06 silverado stock rims on his truck and they looked pretty good.
    Year/Make/Model: 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
    Powertrain: 4.8L V8, Automatic, 2wd
    Tires/Rims: Stock rims and tires for now
    Top 5 Mods: Straight piped exhaust, Billet Grille, Color-matched bowtie/shaved moldings, 12K HID's, Two 12" Kickers with a 1,000 watt amp
    Next Planned mods: Truxxx Leveling Kit, Nitto Trail Grapplers, 15% Window Tint

    and the XD line of wheels by KMC

    many of these are available in black as well. The XD Monster, XD Hoss, and XD Addict are my favorites for the XD rims. Motometals look decent as well. I run the Cragar Soft 8's on my truck, they're under $70 a piece at Summit Racing last time I checked (for 16" wheels at least....), just as another suggestion.

    I was thinking about some of those too. I just dont know if black would look better or will chrome look better on a two tone truck.

    Chrome looks good on just about anything. My truck is 2 tone as well (silver on top, grey on the bottom) and I think the black rims look good on my truck. It really comes down to personal taste. Check out some of my album pictures if you want to see what the Soft 8's look like on a two tone truck.

    I think chrome might be a little too flashy.

    If I did get black wheels should I get a black toolbox and smoked led tail lights so it would better match the truck?

    Yeah, I think it would too. I think I might go with XD Misfit's on Nitto Trail Grapplers. They looked pretty good on ajarman's truck.

    Don't worry about what we think you should do -- pursue your own sense of style. After all, in addition to many modifications/upgrades being functional, they're a form of self-expression.
