I need help with a decision!

Hey guys I fixing to break down and order some new wheels for the 08 for myself a Christmas present . My truck is a 08 black FX4 Crew cab with the dark shadow grey at the bottom. I am wanting a set of black wheels. I am a pretty big fan of KMC diesels but I didn't know if you guys knew of any other nice looking black wheels to go with. I also wasn't sure if most of you like your 20's or 22's that was another big thing I wanted to figure out. So if you would give me some input on what you guys think would look good! Thanks

I looked everywhere for a set of the black KMC diesels and could not get ahold of any. Another downside to them is they only come in a 20x10 which was too wide for my taste (not running a big lift kit). I went with 20x9 KMC HOSS in black and I'm very happy with them. Here are pics before and after I took the gray fender flares off.

So you didn't put urself on your own naughty list this year huh.. gotta look out for #1 right? I like the diesels a lot.. and that grey bottom breaking up the black will look awesome I think. I prefer 20's unless you are lifting your truck and gonna have larger rubber around them. I just think 22's and above overpower the look of the truck usually.. just my opinion. I have black KMC Rockstar 20's and love them! Definetly let us know what you go with though!

I love the look of 22'' and I was going to get them but the cost of good tires almost doubles and I love doing smoke shows so I passed..

AKK I love those wheels they look good. As far as the gray goes on mine I have it on the fender flares and the bottom of my doors but like Big Brad said I think it breaks it up nicely. I will probably go with a lift of 6 to 8 inches. thats another big decision I am facing is what lift to get. Rainman those wheels look sick as well and I really do want 22's but like you said the tires double but man do they look good. What tire do you guys recommend on a 20" wheel! Im new to all of this so please bear with me it is much appreciated! :Thumbup: Paul

What about the KMC Monsters? I've seen a pic of these on an SD and they looked awesome. Can't find it at the moment but here is the wheel itself.

Those monsters look sick as HELL. I bet those wheels are a pain in the *** to keep clean with those screws.. As for tires I have been running Nitto Terra-graplers 'i think that how you spell it' those tires are great on and off road and I think they look good.
