Wheel Suggestions for my White F250 Please

We just bought our second PSD. Sold the '97 F250 in favor of an '01. The new truck has Load Range D tires, and I'm planning to tow heavy so Load Range E tires are needed very soon. During the swap I thought I would get a new set of wheels.

Looking for wheel suggestions for my 2001 White Crew/Short F250 4x4. Currently it is stock ride height, but I plan to level it with the wheel/tire upgrade. The style wheels I like are more business than bling such as Weld, Mickey Thompson, Dick Cepek, etc. I'm having a hard time because looking through the magazines it seems everyone is pushing 20"+ wheels that are painted black. I'm looking at sizes 16.5" - 18". All black paint is right out because it looks too aggressive on a white truck. I prefer painted/clear coated wheels as I don't like to spend my time polishing wheels.

Photos of wheels on trucks would be very helpful. Vendors, feel free to contact me. I'm ready to buy.

Maybe I should have posted in the exterior forum? I'm really struggling with a wheel choice. Anyone ever heard of the Alcoa Pro Series? Brand new. Can't find anywhere online that sells them. Alcoa is an OEM supplier so expect that these are OEM quality.

I'm almost embarassed to do so. We just bought it a month ago and it is stock as a rock. I have the parts for exhaust, chip, intake, gauges, and a front end update on order. I'm waiting to buy the tires and lift/level until I decide on the wheels. It has the stock 16" bulletholes now with Widetrack A/T. yawn.

Here's a pic of our old truck and new truck. The '97 was recently sold. We miss it already. Once we get the '01 fixed up I'm sure I'll like it just as well.

I'm with you..I don't like the black wheel thing... My next set will be chrome plated though. A simple wash and dry when you wash the truck is all thats needed. When(or if, in some cases) you wax the truck do the wheels too. I'm looking at the chrome 18in Pro Comp 6079. Looks like a M/T Classic Lock. The 6059 looks like the old Weld as well.

Believe it or not, I'm still beating myself up over this. I can't decide on a wheel. I was about to buy the MKW M19's but then I found out just how much maintenance chrome wheels can be. I live in St. Louis where they use salt on the roads, so I doubt they would survive more than a couple years with my bad habits. So now I am redirecting my focus to painted wheels. I'm toying with the idea of buying M19's in black, and having them painted silver.

Any suggestions on painted wheels? No black.
