    I think white works in that case.

    I think either one looks good on it, the white looks good due to the white paint already on the truck, but personally i think the black rims give it a much m ore rugged look.

    I think I know a guy that has white wheels on 37" MTR's. I think black works on your rig. Gives it a tougher look, but the white is classy er..uh.. as classy as it can look.

    black rims look trashy
    if you could run a chrome beauty ring they look good but the all black rim and tire is too much
    industrial grey is an option that I stumbled on that even works on my entirely white and black beater

    The factory ralleys (rallys? rallyes? whatEVER) were a silverish grayish thing called Argent.

    Personally, I say keep the white, but that's just my taste. Both my trucks have the factory rally wheels, and are faded and chipped enough that they're half black and half argent /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    IMO go with black, that's what I am getting for both of my trucks. It makes it look more tougher /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    Go with white. It seems that everyone and their mothers are painting their trail rigs black to make them "tougher". /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    So, I'm looking at the two pix -- the second one has different tires. You actually took pictures of the truck with both sets of wheels, huh? (I figgered at first you'd done some photofaking.)
