Default Wheels, What Do You Think?

So I am looking for a set of wheels, I want something different. Intention is to lower my truck with a 2/3. Give me your thoughts?

A split 6 spoke wheel IMHO doesn't work well with this body style and the fake bolts and styling in general lends itself more to a 4wd truck than a lowered 2wd. Not to mention it's only 8.5" wide which will limit you on tire width. I'd be looking at something at least 9" wide and probably closer to 10. Depending on what the backspace is on that one it may be too far in from the fender and throw the look off even more.
Wheel choice can make or break a truck....in my opinion that wheel will break a lowered truck.

A wheel with a lip will look smaller and a bit undersized when compared with a wheel of the same diameter without a lip where the spokes extend to the edge of the rim, like factory wheels. If you are going to go with a rim with a lip, you should go with a 22" wheel, especially if you are going leaning toward more of a lowered sport truck look. I don't think that wheel will look proper on a lowered 4th gen.

If you like that finish and the bolt look....this one works well on a lowered truck.
BMF Novacane 5 Stealth finish.

Keep looking, those GFX wheels look so so in a bad way.

Those BMF's are amazing!

I've seen some KMC off road wheels on a few lowered trucks (and one Mustang actually haha) sometimes it looks cool, sometimes it sucks. Kinda depends on the way the truck looks.
