    no pics but I know it will look good. Black rims work on a red truck well. My 84 K5 was that setup.

    [/ QUOTE ] I don't know about that. My K5 is two tone blue and white, and I think white rims look better on it. But on a red truck, black rims would look very good in my honest opinion.

    Not to mention Tons cheaper then crome. I actually ordered rockcrawlers, but these were what showed up at the door. Couldn't complain!

    Not exactly bright red, but the point that black rims look good anywhere should be apparent...
