Wheels for Electric Blue megacab on 37s?

Last time around, I went with Fuel Hostage wheels, and while I initially liked the look of them, the quality and finish of the chrome was just absolutely horrible. Within a couple months they had already started pitted and flaking.

I think I prefer a chrome/polished wheel on this truck but I'm worried about getting garbage again. I like the polished Weld Draglites I have on my Mustang, because when they get to looking bad, I can just hit them with a PowerBall.

I was hoping Chrome was going to be easy to keep up with on my truck but that wasn't the case unfortunately.

I'm also wondering if a dark gray/anthracite (brake dust LOL) colored wheel would look decent.

Thoughts?

Go with Trail Ready. American made, and you can hit them with your powerball. One of the last quality wheels.

I'll look into those, thanks.

$420/wheel -- my wife will beat the snot out of me. But I wouldn't have to replace them again like I am with these.

I see they are beadlock or simulated beadlock.


How big of a difference will it make going from a 17x9 to 17x8.5? 37" x 13.5" Toyo M/T.

Do you have any pics of the blue ring?
EDIT: I see their page shows a ton of the options:

ZERO

The nice thing about them is that we can order you any backspacing that you need.

I don't need beadlocks on a DD but I don't love the look of the fake bolts on a fake beadlock.

How are these set up?

If I told you I could custom order you a set with NO bolts and NO ring, would that help?

I may not be completely opposed to the small ring. Everything is up in the air right now -- but thank you for letting me know.

Well, just call or shoot me an email, it's much easier than back and forth on the forums.

Nice truck you got. Love the color :-). I need lift and tires, but powdercoated some wheels off a powerwagon semi-gloss black... Might give you an idea
