Default New Wheels?

I am having a back and forth argument with myself over what to do with my wheels. I really like the Stock 20" Chrome Cloverleaf wheels that my brother has on his truck, but my wheels are also kinda growing on me. I know for a fact I am gonna lower my truck, I just cant decide which set of wheels will look better? Any thoughts, input, ideas or trash talk will be thoroughly appreciated haha.


Does anyone have any Photo Shop skills???? Would love to see what my truck will look like lowered with both sets of wheels???


Seriously, thanks for any opinions guys and girls!!!

-J

The star wheels on your truck are the best I've seen. I would buy them over many others.

I'd do SRTs first, and next choice is the later model chrome 20" that are the straight 5 spoke.
Since your bro has a set, bolt them on one side and get a pic, that'd be a useful reference.

Keep the stockers!!! That's a nice, clean, design that fits the SS/T trucks to a "T"!

I'm thinking I may just keep the stockers. But, I'm thinking I may strip the clear off and give them a mirror polish..........waddaya think?

I don't understand why SS/T or Indy owners get rid of the stock wheels. They are part of what makes the truck an SS/T. I get compliments all the time. I've had several people ask me where I bought them.

Here is a picture of mine lowered if that helps you see what one will look like.
