Cosmetic Advice

Hey All -

I just purchased a 2018 RAM 2500 and I am in the process of making this truck look better. I have already added 285/75/18 Toyo MTs, Matte Black Fender Flares, and have a set of Black Rhino Armory 18x9.5 +6 offset on their way, but I wanted to stop and get some other people's thoughts on the looks. I will attach a before and after flares photo, and let me know what you think about the looks as far as better or worse with/without the flares, and also if you think this will look better with the black rhino rims or keep it stock. I am a little worried that the tires are going to be sticking out past the fender flares with the +6 offset.

I also plan to level the front 2" with Thuren Coils paired with their IFS Fox shocks, but when I get some more $$. This is my DD so I don't want to do anything too drastic, but want it to look good. I know everyone will have their own opinion, but just wanted to see what the consensus is. Thanks.

Here is a photo of someone that has a PW with the same rims with a +6 offset but with 35x12.5" mine are 11.5" wide. Do you think if I did the rim swap my tires would be flush with the tops of the fender flares? Thanks.

My initial goal was to black out the truck. However, I think the rims look too good to not put on the truck. The thing is I tend to not like the wide tire look on these. I think the flares make it look better but not sure about the chrome rims with the fender flares on. Trying to make the truck "pop" on the road, and look like a beast. Not sure if that is possible without 37" and a huge lift. LOL.

flares look good with the other black accents (handles, steps, mirrors)
i personally do not think black wheels look good on white trucks. i don't like the "storm trooper" look. but at the same time, others don't like chrome or polished wheels.

do what you like.

I don't think the tires will end up flush with the flare. it will probably be close
