Looking for opinions on wheels

Looking for some black wheels to spend my tax money on and ran across these.I wanted to get your guys thoughts on these.I'm iffy on the bullethole ones,they look cool but I don't know how they would look on the duty.I personally am leaning towards the other ones.Here is a old pic of my truck before the 05 conversion(haven't taken any new ones yet,lol) with the black bumper and grill.Keep in mind I'm getting black step bars,black toolbox, and black 08 bumpers aswell.

I like the ones with the small holes. I've seen them on a white SD here in SoCal and also on a couple half ton Chevys. Good looking wheels. I've also been looking at the black DC-1. Kind of been curious how those look on the SD.

Here I dont know what size you want but these are made in 18's and 20's

American Racing: Official Manufacturer Website- custom, chrome, polished and painted wheels


I like these rims a lot. I'm probably getting them eventually. They got the same look as the bulletholes, but without the chrome....

IMHO.... bullethole wheels are out of style since 1995.... definately do the other ones... they should look great on your truck

I'm sorry,I forgot to say I'm stickin with 17's so I can use my tires that are still in new shape.Plus I'm trying to save as much money as I can because my wife told me 30min after I made this thread that she is PREGNANT!! Wheels are probobly going to be the last (expensive) mod I do to the truck for awhile.I like the wheels you posted though,thanks.

hey, check out Fuel Offroad wheels... they are from MHT

MHT Wheels Inc.

they are selling them through 4wheel parts and selling them pretty cheap right now... might be another option to look at... I just ordered a set of 20x10's for my goodyear MV/T's... just helping you with other suggestions... but I still say bulletholes are too old school and only look good on 88-98 chevy trucks....
