Okay guys I can't decide and have been going back and forth since the day I brought the truck home. I want to stay with a 20" wheel in anything from a 8.5" to 10" wide wheel. I'm going to stick with my current tires as they are brand new, and I like the stance.

If anyone could photoshop these wheels on my truck that be awesome and would help me decide! Heres my truck and the various wheels I'm seriously looking at.




KMC Skitch - Current Favorite BY FAR


KMC Skitch


Diamo 30 Karat


Enkei RT6


Granite Alloy GA12


Platinum America


Mamba M8


BlackRhino Serengeti


BlackRhino Sidewinder


2 Crave No4


Veloche Volt


Theres a bunch more wheels that I like and would love to see photoshopped on my truck... but this "small" list is the wheels I'm seriously considering. Any photoshopping, pictures of any of these wheels on your truck, or opinions would be appreciated!

Ummm, Oh Boy!

You picked a lot to choose from. Considering your Ram is two wheel drive, all white with black accents (sans "chrome") and considering you have a wider assortment in black wheels picked out...I would say KMC Skitch (as well). Second place would go to BlackRhino Serengeti. From where I sit, I always consider the looks as well as how easy to clean. Picking wheels is a tough choice, but it remains to be an individual choice. Somewhat like me telling you what clothes to wear. Individuality is where it's at!

I've learned over the years that the more "nooks & crannies" a wheel has, the longer it takes to clean them

That said... and the current look of your truck - I'd go with the KMC Skitch (black).

Both very good points, and I agree. I know in the end, its all personal preference... but it doesn't hurt to get some other opinions too. I appreciate the input.

The Skitch is the wheel I keep coming back to time and time again. I just was considering some of the other wheels because of a cheaper price yet they still had enough of a look I liked.

Yeah, BOSS does make quite a few good looking wheels... but quite a few Ram guys have BOSS wheels. I'd like to have something a bit different.

IMO. the OEM wheels look the best. Petals are always a favorite and the newer 06 wheel looks great. Aftermarket wheels such as the Boss rims are ok. But I recommend you consider getting some 17" performance wheels and that way you can switch it up and have the best of both worlds.

Personally, I like the ones Black Ram showed. I like a little contrast as trim. To me the all black is a bit too much.
