Sidewall gloss, what is that?

It's a truck. I don't even wash it. That's what the rain is for.

Have the same wheels on my Magnetic Gray STX. Was thinking of painting the wheels mag gray also but haven't been able to find any pics before I pull the trigger.

Either that or a full polish.

I've been looking for hours all week long...find a wheel design I really like....and it's black Cross that one off the list...
There are thousands of wheels out there today for our trucks...and I can only find 2 or 3 that I would buy.

Sorry for the rant and sorry if you have black wheels (you know what they say about opinions!), but I'm just getting fed up with it all.

And on top of that, I gotta pick a tire to go with it....
Lol.......
Ummmm, you never mentioned or said what color or finish of wheel that you’re interested in or looking for.

My favorite as well. Have them on my STX. PITA to keep clean though.

Actually I believe he said he likes the machined look, but the wheels you want style wise, go to a machine shop and have them cut to the finish

I'm starting to consider powdercoating these wheels. Matte black hides brake dust and pits/ scuffs better than the grey.

Very befitting for the particular year model. Looks appropriate, i.e. great.

Same thing here.. when I was looking for wheels on my last truck. Everything was 'black'. I figured when I got my F250, I'd have to start all over. I 'like' the factory wheels ok, but knew I'd replace them sooner or later. I ended up with just that.. black wheels but from the factory. I wouldn't go out and buy these wheels, but it fits the motif of the truck so I'll probably leave them on for a while... however, I really dig those wheels in post #11.

I'll take them ha ha... I ordered my 2019 XLT with the premium package which automatically includes the chrome package. I wanted the basic wheels and I'm looking for a set on craigslist etc since I don't want the chrome wheels. So far I haven't been successful.

I searched and searched when i bought my wheels for my 2017. Do you have a link? Weld stopped making them from what i saw apprx 10-15 yrs ago. I really liked the weld because they were forged and well made, and strong as hell.

The AF wheels that look like that are called "Classic".

5 lugs to boot. Haven't seen that on a truck wheel in a while.

HAHA...I'm glad I'm not the only one who isn't into black wheels. I don't care for the new styles either so there is two strikes. I'm a bit old school and like the a "classic" style and I was almost going to buy these from pro-comp but they don't have the load rating for the tires I want to get(285 or 295-75-18). Other than the bumpers and grill I have no other chrome on my rig so I'm ok with the look.



I have the same stock wheels as ATC Crazy and I'll just keep them. Not the coolest but they go around....
