Default Hmm what rims?

I am in the market for some new rims and i am unsure of what to get.
I don't want to spend tons but want a nice set. Must be alloys no steelies.
I am looking for 17x10. The main color must be black and a little chrome (chrome not needed)

Let me know if anyone knows any good ones!
Thanks

I got a set of these last spring for summer use,..17X8's/Fuzion XTI P235/65RI7's for new tires. Got to take em off soon and get the snows on. The wheels are made in the U.S.A. unlike most.

You can see what they look like at the end of this. Read the description below the vid. HD looks the best but takes a long time to load.

You can even have a custom set made with several options.

http://www.blackrockwheels.com/page3-1/About

Notice the pictures up top...big tired Jeeps mostly with their wheels. Looks like 8.5 is the widest for 17's unless they can even custom make wider. You can probably contact them for a quote/estimate. I'm happy with mine..they look great and the black is powder coated on.
They'd look good on your truck..if you could fit the tire size you want on. I wanted less sidewall for better cornering..while with the same outside diameter as the stock tires. Looks like you have gone big tire?

They were 199.00 each...CDN dollars and our dollar was trading way less than the U.S. at the time. So they may be somewhat less for you?

Ya they can make custom sizes and backspacing.
