Off-Road Rims?

Well I'm doing up my Ford F350 and I'm turning it into a off-road beast.

I wanted some suggestions on the best off-road rims that can also take heavy payloads as I also will be towing with the truck. I wan't the rims to be black and also be 17's.

These are the ones I was looking at getting.

are you planning on airing down any? if so, how much? what kind of offroading? might look into a set of beadlocks, if you're going serious.. they can be ordered for about the same price in sizes up to 22's.. if not i've got a set of chrome weld rockcrushers in a 17" i'd let go for the price of 2 of those wheels lol. PM if interested.

Airing down? (Sorry I'm a bit of a noob in some areas haha)

Just mudding, tails, dunes, nothing to serious and I looked into beadlocks but they're too expensive and what they do isn't exactly what I want. I just want the look like the rims I posted.

airing down is deflating the tires to allow a better sidewall flex and better traction in certain situations.. its popular in rock crawling and sand riding.. in the sand you only drop to a certain psi so the tire will "float" on the sand. rock crawling usually tends to go down to like 3-15 psi which is where beadlocks come in to keep the tire from unseating..

If it's only trails, and recreational riding, normal rims should be fine.

Yea I don't plan on doing rock crawling like how most imagine it. Just simple small rocks and such if they're in the way. I live on the east so no sand for a few miles lol.

So I'm just interested in street locks.
