I'm actually in the same boat shopping for wheels and like your choices at the moment. Having a black truck, I think the all black might be a bit much. I just need to figure out tire sizing. We're going to do the leveling kit and then put the rubber under there. Want to fill out the wheel gap. Keep us posted and take pics with whatever you do.

I stuck with the 20s........for now and got the 295/65/20 Nitto Trail Grapplers. Upcoming thread.

However I should say that the Trails rub the upper control arm with the wheels cut very far....but in reverse only. On just about any other tire this wouldn't be a problem but due to the wide block (V buttresses inside) that little bit of uncalculated width makes the difference. Additionally Nittos run big, their 12.5 is actually 13.3!

I wish my wife would tell me to go ahead and buy tires. I'm running crap over trying to blow one just so I have an excuse to get rid of these terrible HP's that come on it.

I am in the same boat as everyone else trying to find some 17's for when the time comes.
