Wheel Vintiques 16x8

What do you guys think of staying with the black powder coated wheel or should I powder coat them white? My truck is an original solid red-orange (hugger) K20. I've seen lots with the stock white steel wheels but am leaning towards staying with the black.:m6:

I vote white.

Whichever you prefer really. I just got my set of 15x8 steelies for my dark green Burb and I'm wondering if I should go dark green or white. Since my truck is all dark green, the white wheels with hubcaps might look silly - I haven't decided yet. My point being, some people like the black wheels and some people like the white ones - they both look good to me. You need to pick the one you like best and get 'er done.

The white always looks good , with a chrome or SS cap , black wheels look good with the painted silver or white cap or no cap .

Now that's a coincidence, I have a picture of your truck saved from when it was listed on eBay. Did you send up selling it? I sent you a message about the suburban you had just found.

Very nice!
I really like black with the type of cap you have.
Really black or white look great on the 67-72 trucks.
Has a lot to do with the trucks paint scheme.

Wheel Vintiques Style 82. They are well made and have a 4" backspacing for the 8" wheel. The 10" has a 5" backspacing.

Summit has a sale with free shipping, so at $106 apiece, it was too hard to pass up.

The black looks good. I ended up powder coating white because of my paint scheme. Either looks good, especially with that cap.

Either would look good, but if it was mine, white! Since you already have the tires mounted and all, I say drive it around on the black wheels for a while, then decide if you like it or not.

Back in the day about all I saw were black with no caps. It's a tough truck look and I like it. The white looks great with no caps as well. I like black with no cap and white either way. But,white looks best on a truck that has white paint,especially a two-tone. Here's black open on an '84 with solid paint:

I would go with the black for me personally it looks more tougher. :bling2:But if you we're going to make it a stock looking I would go with the white.

Here is the truck. I ordered a 2" lift to compensate for the sagging original springs. I am running 285/75R16 BFG A/T.
