Default Trying to decide on wheels, What ya pros think?

Hey guys I have been reading ranger forums for a while but my first post. I bought my first ranger a couple months ago, its a 2007 ranger sport 4x4. My avatar isnt my truck but looks identical, im gonna take pics soon. My truck has the same 16" wheels with goodyear wrangler 255/70/16 tires, the tires are fairly new so im thinkin bout keepin em for now, I want to go bigger eventually(prolly 32"s or so). I have been looking for rims since i bought it and I think i got it narrowed down to 5 or so, lol. What you guys think? I really like the alcoa look but refuse to pay $450 for rims 7 or so years old when i can get brand new rims. Also do black trucks look better with certain finish rims? Thanks guys

Here is a identical truck to mine. Also would these stock wheels with good tires on em be worth anything? The back ones are in great condition but the front ones have some black stuff on em. I tried some polish but wasnt gettin it. If I could sell em I could get bigger tires now. Thanks guys

My vote goes to eagle, the first pic. All are good though except the DC1. Please don't buy the DC1's.

Why is everyone hatin on the dc-1's, I know they say everyones got em but I have never seen them on a truck in my area. Ya dixie thats kinda the way im leaning(mb 72's) cuz of price and convenience but really likin the american racing polished mojave's. But I like the eagles too, see what i mean, this is hard.

For me it's not that everyone has them. I just don't like them. They Don't look right. Something about the way the spokes curve inward or something. idk. I know all the ones you listed are shiny, but just trowin it out there that that the black teflon mojave's make me drool.

I dont think black rims really look good with black trucks, it needs some comtrast. The mohaves are matte black and my truck is shiny black, I just dont think that looks right. Im gonna take pics this weekend after i get it washed(if all the snow is gone). Are all aluminum rims clearcoated, I read the 72s dont hold up good in winter and I am in michigan so I need a durable wheel. Nobody like the polished mohave, I think it would look sweet and nver seen em on a ranger.
