Another obligatory vote for wheels thread :)
 
I think I have it narrowed down to a few different wheels. Now I know everyone has their own opinion, so I'll let you know what I'm shooting for.

I have a limited that I feel is a car with a box. :) I'm trying to continue that theme with my wheels. I don't want some rugged, gaudy looking piece of metal on the truck. I'm looking for something sporty and classy while still looking mean. I don't like all black, as they just look like a big lump flowing into the tire. I also am not a fan of the big lips. Spokes that bow in reverse just looks off (read Boss).

I'm debating between sticking with the stock skins and keeping a 20" wheel, and upgrading to a 22" with new tires. I like the 20 idea just mainly due to cost, but it's not finalized.

Truck is a 13 black limited with sport grille.

Without further pontification, here are the contenders.

KMC680

Not sure which one this is, but I like it too. ;)

Seeing as you're going for the more sport/street truck look I would go with 22" KMC's. That's the nicest looking wheel you posted IMO and upping the size would help with the look of your truck. Are you planning to lower it at all? Or at least the back end to make it level?

Sadly, I like the 2wd look, but live in a 4x4 area. I've had 2wd's and they were fine, but the resale value is non existent. As far as leveling, I have air ride; so it pretty much takes care of itself. :)

It's funny, but I don't like the rough and rugged wheel craze that's out there. If I had a lifted truck I could see that, but I don't want to give up my lazy boy ride, lol.

I'm sure a lot of guys think I'm crazy, and these wheels should be reserved for lowered 4x2's, but I think it can be pulled off OK with the right wheel. If I can only find a way to over ride the air ride and leave it in exit mode. :D

This one's a little departure from the rest, but it keeps grabbing my attention. Might be too many spokes, but I like the design and color combo.

The Dub is nice but looks like it belongs on a sports car.

I had similar thoughts but it's similar to the wheel I had on my 11 Sport which I really liked.

Honestly I'm a little tired of the whole black wheel thing but I guess I like the dub lace the most.

I saw one similar made by American Outlaw called Hollywood. It's pretty badass.

That's actually not a horrible looking wheel. Just not into the whole complete black look.
