    Back to the black wheels subject... I was just messing around in Photoshop and decided to see what my wheels would look like in black: <a target="_blank" href=http://www.geocities.com/capman2k/blazer.html>http://www.geocities.com/capman2k/blazer.html</a>

    Tell me what you think...

    I like black wheels. Before you spend lots of $$ on those wheels, see if you can find something wider. If you ever plan on going off road you will want bigger tires and wheels (in black!).
    I think those stockers are 7" wide....? You want at least 15x8. you can get those in black for about $50 each. The only way you can beat that price is to rattle-can your stockers.

    actually, wider tires is on my christmas list :) I like the narrow ones for snow and all that, but they're pretty wimpy looking for summer use...

    Click on the link at the end of this post and check out my truck, I have black wheels on them. 15x8's, I bought two of them, the other three was given to me. All were white spoke and a couple cans of black spray paint solved that. I will be getting rid of them sometime though, I want to move up to Alcoas.
