Help to Pick Wheels???

Ok so like the title says i need some help picking my wheels. Not really sure what will look good besides chrome. But up here after a year on the beach and winter no matter what there pitted. No one really has any pictures of my color with wheels. So make some suggestion. I want 18" and there being wrapped in 325/65/18 duratracs. And the 2.5" level is coming.

What color is that? Hard to tell but a machined wheel would look good like what I have on my truck. Some wheels to look at would machined fuel hostage, or any machined fuel wheels, machined xd's. Idk I'm not much help haha

Its Dark Stone Metallic. I was looking at the machined and black but didnt know how it would look with all the chrome on the truck. No one has this color really to compare ive looked every where for the same color 6.4 with after market wheels and tires and cant find anything.

Machined would be your best bet. Easy to take care of, and goes with chrome. My truck still has alot of chrome. Most people I see with your color get rid of chrome so its dark grey and black. I think it would look very good with machined. I also like the stock 20's that are on there. I would love to find a set for winter rims with some nice tires on it.

I agree the machined hostages would look good with your color combo. Fuel also has a few new wheels that might look good but I havent been on there website to see what sizes they offer them in. I have the chrome hostages on my truck, 18's, with the 325 65's dynapros and 2.5 leveling kit. I love the stance!

I honestly prefer the stock wheel on the 08's 20's. I dont like the look of the black wheels on that dark color unless it is a BLACK truck, then it looks good. Def. stay with stockers or go with a machined alum wheel.

Well I think I decided on the Mayhem Chaos 18X9 wheels with the Goodyear Duratrac 325/65/18.
