i love gimp. and go with straight black and keep the hight it is at now. the truck will look really good with black rims. my truck has had black rims since i got it. i am debating whether to reverse the color or just go straight black.

I do to and initially that was my first idea when I bought the wheels cpl months ago, but seems like every one has torque thrust or bullets (see them everyday, other than the mustangs). thats the only reason I shy'd away from the idea.

I would say the same color as the truck, but with big mud tires.

It's all about what you like. If you like the black, do black. But I think I'd just leave them the color they are. In my opinion, it looks better that way. But either way would look ok.
