Calling all black trucks!!!!!!
 
OK guys, think I have found the setup I want to go with now just have to choose the rims.

I'm not sure if I want black with machined or chrome or what :LOL:

Looking for pics of black truck with after market rims.

If you could also put your lift or level if any, the model of rim and tire specs that would be appreciated.

I have the black 2 tone with the gray Laramie so if you have the same paint scheme even better, if not all black trucks will do.

Thanks in advance :smileup:

If you post a good quality pic of your truck and some wheel options you're considering, I'll bet they can be photoshopped onto your Ram. :D We have an expert.

I find that on black trucks, if you have all black rims, you lose the rim in all the blackness; the machined parts make the rim stand out and give defenition to the truck.

i will say stay away from black rims but thats just my personal opinion cuz i HATE black rims with a passion

Thats what I thought, especially with the machined look of the gray 2 tone I have.

Mind you, I have a fair amount of chrome too so I thought that might look better as well :4-dontknow:

Will try and get a good pic once I clean the snow off :LOL:

Definitely go with chrome. Black just doesn't look good on black trucks, and chrome just pops when the black paint is shining. I know my truck isn't the same generation but here's mine:

My truck's not black, but I think my wheels would look nice on a black truck. Definitely go with an accented wheel if you go black though... just my 2 cents...

Some black mixed with some chrome or machined aluminum looks good on a black truck. My truck isn't black but here's what I am talking about on the wheels:
