I'm looking for around 16-17" not really looking for 15"s unless their nice
I really like the dc-1s but everyone has them!
I am looking for something wide. also Black with little chrome and all four for around 700$

Thanks

True. Personally, I like the look of 16's better, but a big reason why many people run 15's is because you have MANY more tire size options when running 15's, and a smaller diameter wheel with a larger diameter tire is better for offroading.

ive got MB predators in 15x8 but they come in 16x10 im pretty sure, id get 15's if i were you, once you go above a 15, tire prices skyrocket

my 15's 53 bucks, vs 16's at 74 each

Great point, I forgot to add that.

Why you have to pay more money for less rubber is something I'll never understand....

eagle alloy makes a rim that looks like the dc-1 only thing difrent is it does not have the little lugs around the edge.

also cheaper than the dc-1
