Wheel/Tire advice

I just got a 2011 that came with chrome 20" rockstars and 295/60/20 terra grapplers.

Truck color is Pearl white with tan two tone. I'm not a fan of rockstars or chrome for that matter. What is a good looking wheel that will go with my truck? Not sure black will work with this color combo.

Also, I test drove the same truck with stock wheels and tires (20's) and it seemed to drive with less load and better mpg. Do the 295's really make that much of a difference? The nittos also seem to have a very slight wander issue. Is this normal? Are there better riding tires in this size range?

Thanks so much. Loving the truck so far.

I wouldnt do black wheels on that truck. It looks good with chrome and everyone is going with black wheels.

American Force and MT

I too was looking into black wheels. After looking online for a while, I went with the American Force Wheels.

Here a few pictures...
