Default Wheel options?

I have 2008-019 on the way.
The previous owner had the wheels refinished in black.
I prefer the factory chrome or even better, silver.

1. I can't seem to find these wheels anywhere online. Anybody know where I can still get them in chrome or silver?

2. Is there a good aftermarket option? Should I go with 20", 22" or 23"?

3. Or, should I have these wheels re coated in chrome or silver?

Thank y'all for input,

J

Default wheels

If it was myself I would stay with the chrome ones.

I wouldn't think many.
I sit in traffic many hours a week :( and have never seen one.

I see 357 is on its way to tx. I almost bought that one on eBay.
Then I found the supercrew on jumped on it.
So me an you makes two, maybe 357 will b in this area.
I plan to go several mods, you?

So...does anybody know where I can still get these wheels?

Here's a link ti there website it dosent show the truck but here facebook page does. Were about 11 hrs from houston but they may be interested I'm sure you would have ro pay shipping on both sets of wheels but its cheaper than buying new wheels. Good luck. http://www.beatonsautosales.net/?noredirect

Nice find, you must have had to dig for that one.

I will try them, the black would look good on their truck.

No, I found one in Cary, NC

Previous owner used to post here, sent pm for truck history, no reply.

Would love to have the hitch and bags though, I need to find those.

By the way do you know of a good muffler/exhaust shop that does great work at a reasonable price? I need my headers and cat-back installed next week.

jbullerjr, I'm the person that bought 357 from ebay. I'm super excited about the truck. I've been looking for awhile now. Do you have any pictures of your rims? And did they powder coat them? Or are they wet painted?

I know what you mean i cant wait.
My truck is still in transit from NC.

On the pics sent to me they look powder coated. I will post some pics tomorrow.
I think I would like them pretty good on any other color than black :(.

They would probably look great on your truck.
Wanna trade? :)
