Wheels

I was pondering today, I really want to put some wheels on my truck, but I HATE the big rig 10 lug look (sorry for any who have them). So I was thinking what do you guys think about 3rd Gen Wheels? I have not seen any Dually's w/ 3rd Gen wheels, so I think it would be a unique look.

Grabb a set of 16" Alcoa's. I saw a new set for 500 bucks the other day. The cool kind too! They had the oblong or triangular looking holes, not punched round holes.

BLACK WHEELS!!! Have you ever seen a dually with black wheels? I don't have a pic or address. I have seen some with black five spokes like the "RBP's" or the "rock star". With the right color truck it would be awesome!!!!! JMO:Thumbup:

Heck ya, I'm doing the same thing, I'm not going to post any pics until its finished though, Semi flat black is the main thing, all over NO CHROME!!!! Maybe the lug nuts and an emblem or 2 with some red letters but thats it, Have you seen "rob & big" with the Murdered out tahoe or yukon or whatever it is?

FYI..... don't torque the heck out'a your studs. I've seen more busted studs from gun-happy impacts than from anything else. Know your torque specs and use a torque wrench.
