jwat142 12-29-2007 7:40 AM

I recently purchased a black 2004 EXT and I am now looking to put some 22" rims on it. I am hoping to get a rim that is mostly chrome with some black accents. Below are some pics of rims I am considering. Which one's do you guys like best? <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/530588.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/530589.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/530590.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/530591.jpg" alt="Upload">

Definately number 1

jwat142 12-29-2007 8:49 AM

Thanks everyone. I was definitely leaning towards #1 at first. I think those may be the ones I get.

Number 1. It's by far the cleanest design.

black rockstar KMC's hands down <BR> <BR>only if you can swing it though

joshbuzz 12-29-2007 10:10 PM

Those rockstars are tight, but way to popular!! I'd go for somethin more original! The number ones are awesome!!

radikal 12-30-2007 11:45 AM

NUMBER 2 by far !! LOL i had to did it i am the first one but no not really i think the best choice will be those Lexani's i think number FOUR !

olskooltige 12-30-2007 11:03 PM

stock wheels and use the money on something else

timmy 12-31-2007 4:33 AM

another vote for stock rims.

csparks13 12-31-2007 6:02 AM

I would go with 4.

jmuthafnp 12-31-2007 9:27 AM

I bet these would look tight on a Caddy. Just thought I would throw it out there. <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.bossmotorsports.com/custom_chrome_wheels.cfm?id=355#" target="_blank">http://www.bossmotorsports.com/custom_chrome_wheels.cfm?id=355#</a> <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/530891.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR> <BR>Otherwise, my vote is for #1. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by jmuthafnp on December 31, 2007)

#1 for sure

uncleelroy24 12-31-2007 4:47 PM

Hey Man, put these 22's on my tahoe last summer and think it turned out good! they are gear alloys "double pumps" there are some other legit rims on the site too...<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/530980.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/530981.jpg" alt="Upload">

Post a pic of the ride that you want to put these on. <BR>1 or 3.

jwat142 01-01-2008 10:13 AM

Well, change of plans. I was set on buying the first rims listed above (#1), but I just found out that the black insert is actually just a sticker they put on there, so I am definitely not doing that. <BR> <BR>I am now thinking of going with the Dropstars (#2) as I found a really good deal on them. The only thing I am worried about now is that the rims come with either Nankang or Linglong tires, which I have heard are pretty cheap tires. Anyone know anything about Nankang or Linglong? <BR> <BR>Here is a better pic of the DS03's and another pic of a black EXT like mine. This is not my truck, but very similar. Right now mine has the front windows tinted dark also and I have a chrome vertical grille on the front. Let me know what you think... <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/531067.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/531068.jpg" alt="Upload">

Me personaly I don't like aftermarket wheels that have center caps to cover the lugs. Nice ride! Who cares what we think though just get a wheel that you like.

grant_west 01-01-2008 12:40 PM

JKW: I have seen your year EXT with wheel #2's <BR>They look great. They would be my shoice. If you look threw some of the older DUB mag's you can see what Im taling about Drop Star would use a black EXT with wheel #2 in there catalog

wakesetter101 01-01-2008 3:13 PM

i am with Aaron all the way. Get ones that you can see the lugs. Looks alittle more classy to me.

kevin_bird 01-01-2008 7:38 PM

I would def check out all the dropstar wheels a lot of them look really good on Caddy trucks. <a href="http://www.dropstars.com/" target="_blank">http://www.dropstars.com/</a>
