    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 rim

    Check out:
    XD Rockstars (or some of the other wheels in the XD series)
    Ballistic Jester
    Hmm....

    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).

    you can check out tirerack.com...select your vehicle and you can even see the wheels on your truck...just to give you an idea at least...good luck...happy shopping!

    well I looked around at tire rack dot com and apparently the only XD series that will fit on my truck at 16" are the diesel's and the ballistics wont fit at all unless I go up in size which I think I may be able to do but I'm not sure. I also don't like the look of the Enigma rim as well

    But what I have found is Dick Cepeck DC-2 and the Granite Alloy GA9

    but no 5 spoke

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

    I always thought Z71's came with 17's.
