blue/grey truck with black wheels

Does anyone have any pictures of a 2011/12 blue truck with grey trim and black wheels?

If no one has pictures does anyone have an opinion? I have a 2011 blue/grey f250. I can't decide if i want to go with the polished aluminum tool box and chorme wheels or a black tool box and black wheels? Which do you guys think would look better?

I have the same color and looked on several wheel sites that allow you to upload a pic of your truck and play with different rims, and I dont think the black rims look that good with that color combo JMO though

I think that a black, but not all black would look great on that color. I wanted that color but ended up with my second pick. A black / machined wheel would look tough and chrome set would look show like. I like both but the new F250/350's have a tough look.

I've got a friend that just bought a 2012 F250 CCSB Lariat in that blue/gray two-tone and he put a set of Dick Cepek DC2 (I think that's the model) wheels on it that are mostly black with chrome spokes. Anyways... I was leary about it until I saw it, and it looks sick. He got 35" Kumho MT's and it looks incredible. I don't have any pics, but as soon as I see him again I'll try and snap some. I'm not huge on black wheels if they aren't done right, but his turned out extremely well on that truck.

Vlxjim, I would probably go with a wheel like you are talking about, mostly black but not completely. Your truck is SICK btw!

I also vote chrome, but I don't like black much on any truck, so I'm a bit biased.
