Black Rims on Black Truck

I have been thinking about putting black rims on my black Silverado. Anyone have any favorite brands?

I like the looks of a few I found online.

V-rock Recon
Tuff T01
XD Rockstar (although I think the star is a little big)

Black on black looks awesome.
Personally I'd ditch the Rockstars, too cliche.
Many cool wheel designs out there.
The main thing I look at is the complexity of the wheel with respect to cleaning. Personally I dont want to have to take a tooth brush to all the nooks and crannies on hte rim to get the brake dust off. SImple desing that can be cleaned up with a sponge is what I like.

Very well said. That's key, IMO, to getting a wheel you can live with for an extended period of time.

Love the Black on Black look I got the XD Monsters. The star on the Rockstars reminds me of the Dallas Cowboys and I'm not a fan of theirs.

I have 18s on it now with a 265/65/18 tire. I would like a slightly bigger tire, but could stick with an 18" rim I think.

I'm not sure how big of a tire will fit without raising the truck.

If you tell me what year your truck is, I can let you know how big a tire will fit.

You can go with 275/70R18 (33.27" x 10.94") for a taller look or 305/60R18 (32.44" x 12.44") for a wider look. These specs are for a Nitto Tera Grappler. Different brands have slightly different specs, but these sizes will fit.
