Hey all, I searched the forum and did not see this tool listed anywhere, so I apologize in advance if this is a duplicate.....

I stumbled across a great link that lets you pick out rims to see how the look on your ride.

It's simple and fast to use: once you select your vehicle and other vehicle details, you then choose a wheel brand name/style/color from the menu of pics below. Once you select a wheel, it automatically adds it to the computer generated pic of your vehicle. It even takes into consideration the wheel's diameter (however, tire size does not change).

Hopefully, this will help answers the many "what does that wheel look like on my vehicle" questions that are asked, as well as aid in the overall search for that perfect wheel.

That's a good one Mike & for the exact reason you stated. That question gets asked a lot.
Now if we could just settle the question of what looks better "white letters out, or blackwalls out"

Yeah...these are just fun little cool tools that will hopefully help out. And Stephan, to answer your question, maybe you should start a thread poll?! It would be interesting to see the results.

White letters out or blackwalls out has been asked before, but the body color wasn't specified & I think it makes a lot of difference depending on dark or light paint. Also wheel color & alloy makes a big diff too, so I think there are probably about 100 different answers to that question & they all have merit.

I agree..the choices are limited from both sites in terms of specific makes.

Yeah...one of those questions in which one answer will never cover all of the possibilities.

It would be nice if they included stock rims in their library. I tried to use it to see what my truck with the stock rims would look like with the stock rims with different tires.
