Dually OEM Front wheels

Loving the my new dually. Finally getting used to being so long and wide. Only thing I do not like are the OEM front wheels. I think they are ugly and detract from the truck. Anyone found an alternative that matches the rears?
Thought about removing the silver trim ring, see if that helps.

I donít have any trim rings and donít recall ever seeing such a thing. Got a pic?

Are you referring to the hub caps, perhaps?

The fronts match the rear outer wheels , so what's the difference?

How they bulge out versus the rear being deep.

Not trying to rain on any parades here but, the person who posted the harley F450 wheels are for a 10 lug F450. If your planning on putting them on an 8 lug F350, im no math genius but i think 10 is greater then 8. Gonna needs some adaptors or something. 🤔

Theyíre the same wheel just turned around. One facing in and the other facing out. Your steel spare fits in any of the six possible positions.

Yes. Not saying it isnt normal, just saying I'm not a fan of the wheel. I"m sure theres an engineering reason its done that way, just wish the wheel was flipped the other way.

You can remove the adapters and run SRW wheels up front:

At the dealership where I bought my current and previous Rams, a lot of the veteran staff I had worked with had moved on by 2007 - I found out in 2008, the dealership was closing and the Dodge franchise was being turned over to the Chrysler/Jeep store about a mile away. The master tech was both Cummins and Viper certified, and also owned a Cummins Ram, so he would always crosscheck our trucks if he found a problem with his, or I came in with a problem in mine. He always took my truck to work on if it was anything more than routine fluids and filters. (Definitely miss him.) The dealership had mailed some service coupons in early 2008, and one was oil change and tire rotation for $49.95, including diesels and DRWs. Hey... 12 quarts of 15W-40 cost almost that much on their own, so I made an appointment. A younger guy with an "assistant service manager" tag wrote the work order, and I went to the waiting room, figuring this would be less than an hour as they didn't seem too busy. After about 30 minutes, this ASM comes to the room and says "Mr. Jackson, we can't do the tire rotation - there seems to be an issue with the wheels." So I follow him back into the service area where my 2005 Ram 3500 is sitting in a bay, with a tech who didn't look too far out of high school. The ASM then points and says "See - the front wheel sticks out, but the rear wheel is a deep dish - we can't rotate them." It was all I could do not to laugh in the man's face. "It's the same wheel, just turned around," I managed to say in a calm voice. The ASM insisted they were different, and I even told him to stick his head in the rear wheel well to see how the two rear wheels are the same as the front butted against each other. The ASM wouldn't even do that. Finally, I said "Trust me, buddy - all 6 wheels are exactly the same - there's only one spare tire... where do you think it goes if the wheels were different?" With that, I went back to the waiting room. I guess one of the more experienced techs overheard and straightened out the ASM and the kid tech, because I did check and the tires had been rotated. How did I know? They didn't bother to re-air them... in an empty dually, one runs the rear 4 at significantly less PSI than the front two. The dealership closed a few months later, so I never had to go back there, but after that episode, I probably wouldn't have anyway. How do you get to be an assistant service manager if you don't know dually wheels are the same at all positions?
