OK guys, time to help me out with some rim choices, I made a new album on my Fotki page, and will post a poll here. Pick two sets and vote for 'em, we'll see which ones actually end up on it! There are 16 different sets in four groups for the poll, each set of rims has a number on the Fotki page, so check 'em out and vote!

Riley, it's not that I hate the kit rims, but they just don't fit the truck. Now I have two sets of 'em. I've had the first set for years and apparently they don't look right on anything yet!

Looks like a Crager-style rim is gonna be the choice so far...

Thanks for the input guys, but I need to clarify a bit...don't go with the picture number when voting for a choice, below each picture is the actual number you want to vote for...I should have made that a bit more clear at the start!

Hey Mike, On the group D I didn't roll the page down far enough or I would have voted for # 16. Nice looking Truck.

Man you can't go wrong with a set of classic Cragar SS'. The Vectors would look okay too. The modern stuff............not so much.

I voted for 4, 9 and 14. For group B I didn't like any of them so I just voted for 8, but that's not my honest opinion, since I couldn't make my mind which one was the less-ugly set.

Those Centerlines looked really cool!

That's how i felt, I didn't hate the rims, they just looked out of place on that truck. Looked to me like they belonged on a Civic or something.

Thanks to all who voted, I now have the rims I want to use for this build. When I combined the votes here and the ones over on Scale Avenue, I ended up with a tie between choices 1 & 16, so I flipped a coin and the SSR rims won out (Choice #1), I was pulling for those because I want to get 'em out of my rim box!
