Hostage's or Novakane's?

I'm gonna get some new wheels soon but have no idea what I want! I thought I'd see what you all think! I still don't know whether I want to stick with chrome or go with a black wheel. If I do go with a black wheel, I want either Novakane's in death metal or Fuel Maverick's 2 piece in their chrome/ polished black finish. I definitely do not want a matte black. As for chrome, I really like Hostage's and Novakane's. I am open to any other suggestions as I find looking at wheels and such to be completely overwhelming! 20's or 22's? I am going to run 37x13.50 Toyo M/T's. Any and all input is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Cameron

37s on 20" wheels max, unless you like the low profile look... they actually look better on 17s. If I had it to do over I probably would go with 17" wheel (I have that same tire on a 20). Check out the Method wheels, they look pretty good too. just my $.02

I like the chrome hostages. Its what I have. I agree, anything more than a 20" wheel and you will loose alot of sidewall. I went 18"s on my truck with 35's because in a 20, there was very little sidewall, and in my line of work I need sidewall.

Man 22s min...Im sorry for those hating on the bigger wheels..but 17s 18s..really now...come on...not on a late model truck fellas.

22s with 37s is a great combo....

The Hostages and Novakanes are both great looking wheels...I will say that you dont see many of either in CHROME, but the black in each are played out IMO...I like something that not everyone has.

I just pre ordered the Fuel 2 piece NUTZ in black/machined at our shop.....they havent even been released yet...supposed to ship sometime in the next 2 weeks...with that said, go with something that no one or not many have if you want to stand out.

I agree the 17s and 18s are too small. I have 18s now and hate them. I think they make they truck look smaller.

Im still stuck on the old school small wheels era, not a big fan of the tiny sidewall tires. That being said I really want some AF 22"s!

I agree that the 20's and 22's look best on these trucks, but I just cant do it on my truck. I spend alot of time on large rock roads going to and from rigs. If I ran 35's and 20's or 22's the rims would get beat up in a hurry and I cant run 37's because then the truck sits to tall for towing. Everyday you can see the dirt and dust marks on my tires where the rocks hit and rub the sidewalls. These marks are often times only an inch or two from my current rims.

Go 20's and stick with chrome. Either wheel would look great with your color. Agreed that black is overused.
