    I somehow managed to blow up an original aluminum factory rim on my F250 and havent had any luck sourcing out a used one. The truck is a 2000, has 285,000 kms, and is in really good shape. I'm not really into blinging my work truck, but came across a deal on either one of these. Which ones would you decide on? Truck is red, and tires are Bridgestone Dueller AT Revo's. I'm leaning towards the black ones. Your opinions please.:drinkup:

    Black all the way. Much nicer rim and if the rust or get chewed up black is black buy some paint and fix it.

    I like the chrome. On a red truck with chrome bumpers already I think chrome rims would look stellar.

    Either will look good. I personally like the style of the polished ones better though.

    I think the polished ones will look mint on your truck...

    JMO - black on black is pretty cool, but black on any other colour is simply F'd... All my buddys painted there wheels on thier cars and trucks black and I still laugh at them all the time and say you guys are F'D in the head.... Just cause a rapper put black wheels on thier black escalade now everyone thinks there cool.... but again JMO

    I think that they are both real nice rims. With that said I think that the black ones would really stand out and look tough! I believe that and red truck and those rims are a match. Either way show us pictures of the outcome!

    Ended up ordering the black ones. The polished ones were slightly used. Should get them this week. Will post pics when mounted.

    They are from a local guy. He wants $550 for four-might not be worth it if you factor in the shipping. I dont even know if its a good deal or not. What do you guys think? Am I getting hosed?

    Remember, neither one of those wheels are going to hold up for snot if you run them in the winter with even a hint of road salt. Your factory wheels had a protective clear coat. Almost none of the aftermarket wheels have a clear coat and the ones that do have a very poor one.
