i would paint the rims and inner grill black, leave the hub caps chrome. Its cheaper than buying new rims and a grill and it should look good. It would help since alot of your truck is dark colored and black, and should look nice in black and white.

That is about exactly what I was thinking. Plus it's a real budget saver too. It would take some dedicated time, but cost-wise, it would be very cheap. I like the black and white look myself. Also when I get newer bigger tires, I think it would help.

I mean, I don't think the stock wheels are ALL that bad. They defenently are not the best, but I think they could be decent painted black, and leaving the cap chrome... just my .02
