Ideas on new wheels

Hey everyone, im looking into getting a new set of wheels with my tires after i lift my truck. Im going to start out open in any size wheel and see what everyone says, i will then narrow it down to majority or what i feel is appropriate. Heres what i plan on doing with the truck

DD - street queen
Farm use - field work, gravel roads, muddy/snowy situations
Trail driving - mud, dirt, sand, all the normals with trails
Snow/Ice - deep wet heavy snow, deep powder, ice, ROAD SALT

Basically, i want a wheel that is a good size to be doing this all with and not have to worry about damaging it or anything. Im looking for a 10" wide wheel but anything in the area from 8" to 12" will do im sure.

As far as wheel looks and size, i want something unique, something that looks awesome, performs awesome and makes people take double takes and go WHOA!

As far as color, i thought black wheels on a silver truck with black accents would look awesome, but in other cases, black wheels are harder to come by in multiple sizes and i may just end up going chrome/polished alum.



With all this info given, tell me what your wheel suggestions would be for my truck. Tire size will be 37x12.5 to 14.5 and i will leave wheel size blank for now. All wheel suggestions are open for now.

Some black 20in Moto metal 951's would look sweet IMO. But not all that unique.
