Truck dosent have chrome so it dosent really fit the theme. You could have a shop paint or powdercoat the wheels you have blue-that might be cool, and save $

I like them, they would certainly be an enhancement to your trailer/rig.

I'm assuming those are the Ford Ranger rims. If so, that's essentially the same thing they used on the trailers through the 90s. I think they'll look very nice. Sodar's look nice as well, but I'd opt for the ones you posted. They're straightforward, nice looking Aluminum rims. You have a great looking boat. No reason to get to fancy with the trailer as it could be distracting. Just one guy's dumb opinion though.

I don't like the chrome. I believe painted/powder coat matching boat base or boat trim is best. Although I do understand matching mags to the tow vehicle... I just like the paint better

That made a sweet looking package!:D Ski King, did you jack everything up and rotate the wheels in photoshop so they would match each other, what about the otherside?:rolleyes:

Here I "photo shopped" those rims onto my trailer. Price was sure right on em $80 ea. I think chrome is easier to maintain then Aluminium. TB

Go with the chrome thats the style of rim most stars and stripes had on them.

The rims look great I think, the cheapskate in me would ask do you have every ski, wakeboard, wakeskate, wakesurf board and play toy? I just believe in fun on the water and the trailer doesn't matter as long as it works.

I couldn't keep the aluminum wheels polished which was one reason I made the switch, so these are much easier to keep clean and looking nice. I was concerned about the chrome rusting, but after talking with several people hopefully it won't be a concern. I have the other 3 for sale if anyone is interested. 15" 6 lug - Will fit 2002 -2006 MC Trailers.
