    the one problem, like said before, is the two tone of the truck, I can't tell that easily just by looking at them what would look good. Well I think I can easily just stay with the stock wheels but just jazz them up a bit.

    Would a zero offset wheel work with the factory spec? The only difference is it's 8'' wide. Been trying to look this up but only found bigger sizes. Just don't want to buy them and have them rub

    The stock wheel has a backspacing of 5" and is 7" wide, so with the 8" and zero offset (4" backspacing) it will push the tires out a bit. What are the tires you have on there now?

    I assume that the 2003 had 16" rims stock. If yes, Tire Rack has a LOT of 16" rims NEW for less than $150 per rim. $150 per rim to refinish the stock rims is a ridiculous price.
