Default What wheels on a second gen?

I have a 90 short box extended cab that has been lowered 3". And I can't deside what wheels to get. I want everyones ideas and opinions on what would look good. I just know I don't want anything larger then 18s.

Depends on what your taste is. What are you looking for a low profile or a more beefy look? Go with a 17" or 18" for a lower profile. 15" or 16" for more sidewall.

Your sig doesn't say if you have RWD or 4X4. That might make a difference too.

I just noticed your truck is dropped, so I'm guessing you are looking more at a low profile set up.

Ken, some black 5 spokes would look gnarly on there with the flat black paint. My .02
