new wheels

thinking about putting new wheels on the truck but am having a tough time deciding. I am leaning towards the et five window on back and cant decide if polished or cast center would look better, and if to run the same on front. any opinions welcome.

I like the look of what you have now, but understand the desire for a change. Something that looks good with the ET style wheels are spokes (see attached pic), especially if you have discs up front. They can be had polished or done to match the dark grey centers.

Not sure I care for the bolts in the spokes of the ET's. Rocket has very similar wheels without the bolts.

I think they would be a great set together.

These would look good and I lean towards the grey spoke on a primer vehicle. Not a fan of the Salt Flats.
