Default Help Me Decide On New Wheels

Time for new tires so I decided to go bigger and some other mods as well. I have an '11 ram 1500 slt quad cab silver. I am going to put Duratrac 285/70/17 tires on with bilstein shocks on the front set at 2.1. Eventually I am thinking about a 3 inch body lift so I want to get wider rims in case I want to get bigger tires. However, I can't decide what would look right with my truck. Not sure black wheels would look right so I have stayed away from them. also, no chrome. Polished is ok. So far I have come up with these choices:

MB Wheels Chaos 5 - matte silver machined finish
V-Tec Raptor - Black Mirror Machined
MB Wheels Torque - Silver Machined Face
Pro Comp 1089**

**= I think my favorite so far. Please any other suggestions I would greatly like to hear or thoughts on these. I just really can't decide. Thanks to all those that help!!

I added some attachments of the different wheels as well to help with deciding.

Welcome to the site. You should introduce yourself in the newbie section. Also if you want opinions on these you should attach pictures of them

Welcome to the Z, and as Finn said, Including pictures of the rims or links to pictures of them would make it much easier to vote on.

I personally like machined wheels with some black in them. But those procomps are the best looking of those 4 wheels

If it were me I would go with the third pictured wheel. It would compliment your silver truck.
