I am wanting to get some new wheels for my 2000 3/4 ton suburban and have these in mind.
73434
The only thing is I dont see many Charcoal suburbans with black wheels. Just wondering if any of you have the Charcoal paint with black wheel combo on your rigs that you could post up or if you are handy with photoshop do a quick mock up.
The reason I need new wheels is that my suburban currently has Hummer H2 wheels(they were on when I bought it) and 2 were drilled out around the hub so they are hard to impossible to balance. Well now, the lugs are going oval since they dont fit right and it is becomming a safety issue.
Thanks in advance for the help.

I don't have pics handy, but black rims on a charcoal truck look AWESOME. There are more than a few of them in our town, you won't regret the combo.

That's the descriptor I was looking for.

Not a pic of a Suburban but it will give you a good idea. GM color code is Dark Grey Metallic and it's the best pic I have right now. Bonus shot with attached MC. :D :D
Switched over to black wheels two years ago after loosing countless chrome wheels to the NW winters. Black lug nuts are must as well.....

Black wheels look fantastic on silver and charcoal trucks and SUV's.

I hate black wheels, they always look dirty.

Just found this picture of a tundra with rims I posted on it. I think I am sold, especially since I found them for $570 shipped. Just need the funds.

Tacoma! I love those tires by the way. Aggresive yet very quiet on the road.

They are Jester's made by Ballistic. I need a 17x9 for my suburban so they fit the tires I already have. I found them on ebay for $569 shipped to AZ. I called them today and they are back ordered from the manufacturer until Dec 27th. My local discount told me they were in stock and could be here in 3-5 days. When I called discount back about the backorder, they changed their tune. I always liked discount until lately. They say they will beat anyone, but I have had 2 deals they wont match. One on trailer tires and now they wont match this one.

Wheels of this style are very popular. I sell a lot of these.

There are more than a few sets of those here. It's good to find rims that are unique though.

Looks good, although I agree with taking off the silver studs.
