Advice on wheels

Hey gang, just got my new 2012 F250 yesterday. Im looking at adding some aftermarket wheels and tires, and pry a 4" lift- just not digging the stock look of the truck. The truck is painted autumn red/tan. Ive looked around and there are sooooo many to choose from. I havent fallen in love with any yet.....so im looking for opinions as to what you guys think may look good. Also I want something quality--not some crap thatl b pitting after one winter.....been there and done that and dont want it again!

Personally I love most of the XD series wheels. For a 4" lift look for a 20x9 with a 0offset or as close to 0 as possible

Not sure if its the look your going for. But would look great with all the color keyed parts you have.

Im still torn in between black and chrome or a combo of both lol. I cant find hardly any pics of trucks w/ my color combo w/ any aftermarket rims, so its tough to visualize what the black will look like, let alone many different styles. Ill find a rim I think looks sweet by itself then google image that rim on a truck and decide I dislike the look....so the search continues....Thanks for all the help so far!!!

I second the XD series wheels. Black is my vote.

I have the XD Series Hoss and like them a lot. They are mostly black with chrome hardware and caps.

For some reason everyone loves black rims now, but IMO you cant go wrong with chrome rims. Some trucks look decent with black, but I think trucks with a tan lower just can't pull off black wheels well. Chrome.. classic. Just stay away from any pieces of chrome with double sided tape to hold it on

Thanks!
