2011 F250 White/tan w/ black wheels...

So I have a 2011 F250 (in my signature) and I swear to you I have looked and looked and havent been able to find any photos of my truck with black wheels. If someone out there has a photo or can locate one I would really appreciate it. If noone can locate a photo then how do you all think this tire wheel combo http://www.ntwonline.com/images/P/MTMTZ5262__lg.jpg would look on my truck. Thanks guys!

I personally think it would look kinda out of place. IMHO with the white/tan color trucks look best with either chrome or polished wheels.

Ya and that's what I'm thinking too since I can't find any of them. But I would be pretty upset if I see one rolling past me one day looking good with black wheels ha ha.

I went with 305 65 18 and they are the exact same hieght as the stock tires, their just a little wider. I drive a ton. About 50k miles a year so reliability, milage, and less wear on front end components are important to me. I also went with falken wild peak at tires. The price is awsome and they wear really really well. It would look a little better if I would have went 305 75 18s.
I paid just iver 1200 for tires, and wheels, then had them mounted for another 100

I have a 4.5 in rough vountry lift and upgraded to the bilstien 5100 shicks. Its a little higher than I wanted but im happy with it. It rides the same as stock. I cant really tell the difference. The kift, with socks and labor was 1500 including alignment.

I think the combo looks good. Now
I did plastic dip all the tan on my truck, when I have the coin I'll paint it or vinyl wrap it

Monster billy - That sounds pretty good for that setup. I am about to throw some bilstein 5100s on mine after doing the Leveling kit and I am hoping it will tighten it up a little. Thanks for the info.
Mts678 - Your truck looks good either way and thanks for the photos I think you and Monster billy have just convinced me to go with the black rims instead of the polished.

Glad we could help man! If I ever do change and go the polished or chrome route I'll def go chrome. I had polished wheels before and if you don't take the time to keep them polished and maintains that polish, it'll look faded and hard as hell to get back to the nice polished level.

Hell if my truck didn't come with them wheels idk if I would've bought black ones in fear of the same reasons you listed. But I love it and probably won't change, and it came with a matching spair so I'm happy with em!
