White XLT trim ...black rims or chrome ?

Looking to change things up without spending 40K on a new truck . Was thinking lift , wheels , possibly fender flares , just stuck on rims i like the black look but there's a lot of chrome . Any suggestions or pics of your custom wheels .

I'm more of a polished aluminum, maybe some chrome, guy.
It must be an age thing, but I'm still on the fence with black rims.
Although I do like the ones in your last picture. It's the deep chrome lip I think.

Your truck...your decision...lol

I would also suggest polished aluminum or chrome not black. Especially with a white truck. But its not my truck.

Too much wheel IMO, but I'm not a fan of anything much over 18's, even factory 20's wouldn't be my first choice.

I'll jump on the polished aluminum bandwagon as well, but like anything else, it all comes down to personal preference, who cares what anyone else thinks.

You've got a lot of chrome going on, bug deflector, running boards, bumpers, so black would look a little funny. If you like the look of the black rims maybe try to find some with a little bit of a machined face in them.

I'd go with black. I did that with my F350.

When did winter arrive? lol

If you got rid of most of the chrome the black rims would look killer.
