Personally, I like the light colored wheels with the dark(er) truck. That being said, I think I could also see it being really cool to have dark/dark... Toss up for sure.

Also, You could add a poll to this thread.

I think a dark grey would be cool, no flat or glossy black. I think the grey would matchup better with your truck

I think a darker color will "hide" your wheels. If that is what you are looking to do, then go for it. My two cents is the leave them alone.

Tough choice, I think I'll say charcoal. If I were you I would post in the photoshop forum and see if someone can photoshop them black or charcoal, I think that would make it easier to choose.

Powdercoat them or leave them as is.

Another option would be to paint the indented part of the spokes the color of your choice.

Diehard, i thought about paniting the indentions, either to match truck or black?. to powdercoat they wld have to be stripped to bare alluminum. just to much work.

Yes powdercoating isnt cheap, But krylon won't hold up. The origonal finish is tuff. That's why I suggested painting the indented parts.

Edit: I just remembered that you do autobody painting.

With that in mind. I say paint them DSG or Charcoal grey
