I have always really liked black 20" rockstars but wasn't sure my truck could pull them off. I came across a good deal and now I am tempted to try them out. I've seen black rims on a blue truck and it looks good, what I'm worried about is all the chrome. I don't want to get rid of the chrome side mirrors, because I like how a lot of trucks don't have them. The side steps are also chrome but I would hate getting in and out of the truck without them. I've been wanted to upgrade to 20's for a while now and haven't had the money so this is my chance. Here's a picture of my truck, what is everyone's opinions on how it would look with black rims?

Maybe get the chrome center caps. But I dont think black and chrome mix well. But the only way to find out is to try it.

Black rims do NOT look right on 2 tone trucks, unless one of the colors is black

This is a tough choice...i mostly agree with what you guys are saying but I just really want 20s. I think I'm gonna see if he will let me try them on first.

Thanks for the picture GreenHornet. At least your truck is black but the I see how the rims still clash with the chrome.

I appreciate all the feedback from everyone, I will definitely be thinking it over some more.

Well I put my Photoshop (actually MS Paint) skills to the test and came up with this. Surprisingly I really like it :D



Now I just have to wait and see if the guy even calls...

Did the Rockstars get dealt with? They were prone to cracking.

I'd have to answer NO to that question. At least not as of about 6 months ago. I went through 3 of them in a 12 month period, and one of them that cracked was one of the replacements that had been put on. I think I got about 6 months out of the replacement before it cracked. However, all of my wheels now seem to be holding air (fingers crossed). I thought seriously of going with another wheel, but have really grown to like the way my Rockstars look on my truck. However, coming out to flat tires in the morning is pretty annoying. Now I've got on-board air, so at least I have a way to easily fill them back up to get over to 4WP for them to order a new one for me!

I actually like it. Didn't think I was going to like it, but it's not bad at all.

I've heard about the cracking but thought it was just cosmetic. It pops the tires too? And can I get a replacement if I'm not the original owner?
