Only one picture for now.. it's nasty outside.

This picture is kind of meh.... it looks great in person IMO.... need to wait for the weather to clear up and take some better pictures with the truck clean.

I...I keep coming back to look again, but my reaction is the same...I just don't like them. Maybe it's the lack of any dish or lip that is throwing it off for me. I would love to have seen you powdercoat your old wheels black.
If I could just figure out how to meld the Outback and the Neon into one car...

needs more lip (maybe chrome) and more low. i like how the truck looked in ur sig vs now. Any full black wheel looks smaller then they really are which for me also kills it for me. sorry

Hmmm...when I first saw that you were getting these wheels, I was expecting a much different outcome.

Thinking I should have went with 10s in the rear...but it's okies.

It looks great in person... I'm happy.


The sig looks sick... it looks MEAN...but I felt like a ricer... looking faster than I was, lol.

18x8.5 w/ 255/45/18s on them....they only have a 1.75" lip....


Maybe should have got 10s all around... 3" lip.


Like I said though... I just wanted something that looks nice and I can DD just fine. I can feel comfortable with the wife driving knowing I have a full size tire up (unlike the skinnies before)

10's would be sick, but god damn those tires are expensive. As a daily, 8.5's work just fine.

Exactly, I was looking at tire costs as well plus the fact I can rotate mine since I didn't stagger.

$119 each for what I currently have is not bad for tires.

Exactly this.

For me, those wheels need larger off-road tires and the truck needs a lift. I hate lifted trucks though

Need more pictures. They look decent, but I did like your old wheels better. It is a change of pace which is good. :)

It's probably the rivets. They most likely don't stick out as much in person as they do in the pictures.

I like them but there's just something about them. I feel like they need to be bigger or have more lip.

In person they look bad ass...

I was 50/50 until I actually got to go out and see them on the truck today.

I love them.

They look nice, but the sig pic looks way cooler IMO. Still a great looking truck though.

Looked WAY better in person... the previous owner came with the new guy to pick it up and said he had his doubts from the pics but in person, it looked awesome.

I love my truck. Have you seen it? I can't remember if I posted pics on here or not...

Although, she's a finicky little slut right now... Getting water into the wiring somewhere, below the fuse/relay boxes on the passenger side... But when he runs good, the Magnaflow sure sounds nice with the whistle of the Injen intake. I was the loudest truck on my street, but my neighbor brought home an F150 the other day that comes pretty damn close.
