Choose my wheels.

1. XD





2. Moto Metal





3. Ballistic





Keep in mind that the truck now has polished and black step up bars. The other pic was easier to photoshop because it was a straight on side shot.

I would stay with something flat or matte finish, nothing glossy, or chrome., which is why I chose 3.

I picked #2, but that may be because they look a lot like the wheels my dad has on his '06 F150.

Really, you should go find some old Toyota aluminum wheels from the Tacoma/4Runner. Those were the best.

There is no "Frisco Truck Jamboree", except maybe in Gilroy or rural San Mateo or Marin counties.
However, it is like the SFBay Prius Festival every day.

These. I believe they came in both 15" and 16.5" sizes.

I need bigger wheels because I need bigger tires to go with the bigger lift so I can go over bigger rocks.

The tires are street tires.

#1 is below you Siu. Needs spinners to pull off that look.

#2 is meh.

#3 screams out ... "Ooh, look at me ... I'm so sexy ... you should be so lucky to be in my presence."

Yeah, I'd go for #3 ... unless #4 is still an option. I'm always a sucker for stock wheels.

Tireflys will break up the monochromatic effect; so will tires with OWL or RWL. And I vote for either the OEMs or #3.
