so i need new rims..
my choices are black steele rock crawlers or shiney aluminum ones
price will be no issue as they will cost me about the same for either set
15x10 5x5.5

i currently have aluminum ones and am leaning back to the rock crawlers because i sure cringe when i beat the shit out of the aluminum.
but i really like the way the truck looks when clean

[iagree] BUT I guess it depends on how often you wanna clean the things... Both have a few pro's to them... I like the shiny ones, that's be my choice...

If you cringe when you hit your old rims on rocks then think what you will do with new ones. Save yourself the worries and go steel. Off-roading is about breaking stuff and fixing it, not breaking stuff and having to buy new stuff.

That does look really good :) I like both.. but it depends on the truck... and the owners preference...

Photoshop colors for the rims on a picture or something and see if you like the look... lol :confused: Would that even work?
