  • Black Rims on Black Truck

    I have been thinking about putting black rims on my black Silverado. Anyone have any favorite brands?

    I like the looks of a few I found online.

    Tuff T01
    XD Rockstar (although I think the star is a little big)

    Black on black looks awesome.
    Personally I'd ditch the Rockstars, too cliche.
    Many cool wheel designs out there.
    The main thing I look at is the complexity of the wheel with respect to cleaning. Personally I dont want to have to take a tooth brush to all the nooks and crannies on hte rim to get the brake dust off. SImple desing that can be cleaned up with a sponge is what I like.

      Very well said. That's key, IMO, to getting a wheel you can live with for an extended period of time.

        Love the Black on Black look I got the XD Monsters. The star on the Rockstars reminds me of the Dallas Cowboys and I'm not a fan of theirs.

              Not the same style of wheel you mentioned, but I love the black on black.

                Not sure if it's an option for you, but I liked my stock wheels so much that I had them powdercoated. Too many XD's and the like in my area.

                    Maybe I'm old school, Not a huge fan of painted rims on any vehicle. A little too hokey for me. Like when people tint their tail lights and turn signals.

                    I mean black on black on black. Come on. Break it up a bit with some bling.

                      Rims look great, but trust me, they're a complete PITA to keep looking that way. That's why I switched to black.

                        Oh I know, I have had many chrome rims. A little wax helps make the shine last. But I would still put them on. Someone said earlier they don't like the intricate tight spots you could only clean with a toothbrush. I agree sponge cleanable only rims makes it not so bad.

                          I have an uncle thats, well he's pretty well off, anyways everything he owns is black on black on black. I mean even custom ordered his wifes WRX in all black including the sticking which is normally red.

                          He has this Audi RS4 that he recently put on red adv10dc rims. I was so stunned. But have to admit. They are kinda cool.

                          Its definitely a taste thing. I was just playing devils advocate. I see so many vehicles with black rims now that its almost cliche.

                            Something to keep in mind with any wheels - the car wash alone will not clean your wheels sufficiently. You need to take a bucket of suds to them on a regular basis to remove the road combination of brake dust and road grime. A natural sponge is the best for cleaning wheels, but they are hard to find. I have always kept a roll of paper towel and a bottle of spray cleaner in my vehicles with nice wheels for touch-ups.
