Option 3: Ship them to me for free.


But in seriousness, I choose silver.. don't much care for black wheels on white trucks, makes it look too much like winter steelies to me.

well the problem with that is, they have some nasty curb rash from the previous owner, and painting them all black would hide it pretty well.
