Which DC-1 wheels?

I have been looking at wheels for a awhile and I found some pretty good deals on the DC-1 polished wheels. I am going with the 16" wheels, but trying to decide on the width. I will either go with the 16x8 (bs 4.05" -12 offset) or 16x10 (bs 4.52" -25 offset). Will either of these to rub on the 2003 suspension with 2" leveling kit? Also, if anyone has had any experience with these wheels or polished wheels that would be great to hear the pros and cons? Pics if you have them?

Well one of the reasons I went with black is that my old polished baja rims on my 4runner arent as nice as they used to be I have to buff and polish them to bring back the shine where the blacks I soap up and just hose off much easier in harsher environments. I will say tho I used the 4runner hard, I wasn't easy with it drove it in heavy snow with a ton of sand on the road all the time and also went wheeling so they are semi pitted. If you don't do those things polished wheels arent a bad choice I like them just too much care for me personally.

have have 20x9 chrome dc1..about 5 months of use one rim started to leak. on the back side the chrome was starting to flake off..and thats where the leak was. like it was a bad casting. i got the wheels from national wheel and tire. i told them about it and there answer to me was..buy a new one and send us the old one..when we hear back from D-C we weill refund your card..

i ran out of time to deal with it. when i get home im going to buy a new rim local and have them send the broke one back for a replacement or a refund.

Polished wheels will hold up better over the long haul. As said above chrome starts flaking and chipping and pitting in a relatively short time. Polished can be cleaned up and look like new again. Get yourself a powerball and cone if you have polished and you can keep them looking great without too much fuss.
