So I got a truck, and it came with an extra set of off road tires.  The current tires are pretty aggressive and can handle dirt or asphalt.  Now since I have an extra set of tires I'm thinking they should have rims to go along with them.  The truck is a blacked out tacoma, similar to this one:
 

 
 
No hood scoop on mine (yet) and the tires I have are American Eagle 15x8 steel or aluminum.  I'm thinking Maybe I should put the current non black rim onto my off road tires, and by some new black rims for my "street" tires.  I was at the tire shop and pretty much all their rims are about $90 each. 
 
I'm not sure if I should go 100% black, or leave some metal accents.  Then again, it would be cool to be able to turn off my lights and disappear into the night...
 
I've never bought rims before, and I generally don't buy into the whole, rims/blades/spinners/dubs mindset, but since I have a whole set of tires wasting away, I figure the purchase will be out of necessity.  Kind of like work shoes for my truck
 
americastire.com has a sweet virtua rim previewer.  The generic model of my truck is pretty easy on the eyes.
 
What do you think about these:

    this truck has a very aggressive looking style, I have the same one and in the same color, we are using this for a long time as a (TOS Violation Removed), we are using TRD PRO SEMA BLACK ALUMINUM RIM, that's working fine for us.

    Nice ride.
    Check out tire rack here
    https://www.tirerack.com/...+Cab&package=false
    You can see how rims will look on your ride. Scroll through the rims for the tour. I purchased a set of rims and studded snows for my Chevy a couple years ago and they were delivered to my door ups mounted and balanced cheap. Never had an issue.

    someone took an arrow to the knee and decided to reply it

    Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags!
     The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. When you abuse it, it reverses on you and it hurts you.The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.
