Default Painted Stock vs Fuel Photoshop

I'm trying to figure out if I should just paint the stock rims or go with Fuel Mavericks. I like the cost savings of staying stock but don't know if it will satisfy my itch for new wheels. Opinions?

My eye seems to be drawn to the painted stock wheels, so I guess my vote would be that. Both look great though. I dont think you could go wrong either way.

The paint looks good but it won't last.

I've got to vote for the Fuel rims.... looks much better than the stock pattern and I like the silver highlights of the wheel. It will help tie in your chrome bumper and other small metal/chrome pieces on the truck.

I vote for the Mavericks as well. Looks a lot better than the stock ones IMO.

Since this picture I have debaged the truck and painted the grille surround black and kept the inserts chrome. Bumper is still chrome.

Also, if I go stock I may have them powder coated instead of paint.

Decisions, decisions. The stock wheels are one of the best looking OEM designs. But the Maverick is one of my favorite wheels, period.
