Question Need help deciding wheels!!!!

alright guys, getting tired of the stock look, ready to pull the trigger on some 20x12 wheels. im going this route for the slight aggressive look from wider stance....

being my truck is silver and chrome everywhere, i cant really add a black set of wheels without being tacky so ima stick with chrome..

which wheels would you guys think looks best?

chrome 20x12, (33in tires)

fuel hostage, fuel octane, moto metal mo962?

im trying to attach a pic of my truck as is now... i plan on leaving the leveling kit on it or possibly even removing pending clearance issues...

I like my hostages but everyone has them since I put them on. I really like the looks of the Fuel Mavericks. They look similar to the stock 20's but with a little flare. The Nutz also look good in chrome.

It's a problem mounting a wheel to a tire for a "tire guy"?

A 12" wide wheel is pretty wide, I don't know how wide 33's get but maybe they don't get wide enough to properly fit the wheel without stretching the tire. I would also think that being that wide, a leveling kit won't be enough lift.

I personally love the American Force wheels. Some say they are too flashy but I like the look. Just be prepared so spend some $$$!

You can mount a 12.50 tire on a 14" wheel. Looks goofy as hell in my opinion. But it can be done with a little ether.
