So I've got this nice new truck of mine here:

And I'm looking to replace the stock 20x9s with either one of the two wheels below.

The wheels below are both 22x10s, I just can't decide which one would look better on my truck. I'm very meticulous when it comes to the aesthetics of vehicles and it's come dow to these two.

Is that an 8 foot bed? Because if not, I'd save up for a truck that can carry sheets of plywood, instead of saving up for goofy looking wheels. :P/>

Besides, if you ask me, stock wheels generally look way better, and are way cheaper, than aftermarket stuff. I have yet to see aftermarket wheels that look more aesthetically pleasing than the stock wheels on every car I've owned.

Well the thing you don't know is that the two wheels I have up are factory replicas of the stock wheels that go on the Ram SRT-10s. So I'm keeping with the stock look but getting them much cheaper from a replica shop than getting the exact same wheels from CHysler for triple the price.

More over the wheels plus tires would be ~$1300. Hardly breaking the bank.

Yep $1300 ain't much when it comes to cars.

If you're looking to black your truck out, the first set of rims would do that for you.

But honestly, Blacked out Rams just look kinda ugly to me. All on you though.

I have a few things down the road for this truck. Single turbo, possibly t-83.

Lower the front 1 inch and rear 2 inches, but that really depends on how the truck sits when the new wheels and tires are on it.

among other things I'll be getting those are just a few.

Unless you're going to black out everything (headlight/taillight covers, shaved/blacked out emblems, window tint) I'd go with the polished set. I like that wheel design, it's gonna look sick :tup:

Most definitely not going for the blacked out look.

The machined set.
I've always thought all-black wheels looked tacky.

i thought you were going to try and score the ram runner suspension for it? if thatsstill somethingyou plan on doing the last thing you want are wheels that are bigger then 17 inches... if it were me, i would go with the dick cepek dc2's the 2 tone black and chrome would look great with that truck. if you are looking for street performance, then 20's are what you want, if you want to do any off roading in your truck in the future (like you implied by wanting to get teh baja tuned suspension) then you are going to want 15 inch wheels with bead locks (if bead locks are legal in the state you have your truck registered in)

http://www.dickcepek.com/wheels.php


edit: if you level your truck by lowering the rear more then the front then you will destroy the poor gas milage the truck already gets. if it were me and i were going with a street performance tune for a ram i would do a compound turbo for the 5.7l hemi, replace the front bumper with one that has a lower air dam, and get a lowering kit that maintained the factory stance. i would also replace the tailgate with one of the net style tail gates. a few years back mythbusters had an episode all about bed modifications and what improved fuel efficiency, the 2 most efficient were tail gate up and the net style tail gates... caps and tono covers created too much drag, and leaving teh tail gate down, or removing it all together put too much down pressure on the bed

All black on a black vehicle look meh. Go machined. Keep the wheels clean with some car degreasers and it'll make the vehicle look really nice.

Black 22s, drop the truck a little bit and get some aftermarket LED head and tail lights.

OEF. Silly you. I like variety. I'm focusing on a nice stock look right now and later I'd like to get the ram runner suspension, etc.
