New Wheels - Need Opinions Please!

Well after this ...




I ended up having to get a new set of wheels because the Vision Warriors I purchased from Discount Tire were garbage and were all surface scrapped (on the clear coat) in a radial direction from outside to center. I really do not think a wheel should have done this from some simple muddin and took them back up to Discount tire and was told there is nothing they can do for me. So after a few hundred bucks MORE (which Im not happy about) I ended up with these ....





So I'm looking for some of your guys opinions because I'm torn if I like them or not. I'm also wondering if I should throw some spacers on them to make them look alittle better because they are a 35 offset which my others where a 25. Anyways I appreciate anyones feedback and thank you.

They look good man.

Can you get some better shots from the front so we can see how far they're under the fenders?

How wide are they?

And..... who pulled ya out??

I didn't see any "after" shots showing the full loop. So i figured you got stuck there. Usually, mud up to the rockers + no momentum = stuck.

If not, that's pretty damn impressive!

Edit: and yea... after seeing those pics.. spacers!

LOL nah just messin ... I was beyond stuck! The tow truck driver called a semi wrecker but we got her out about 5 mins before it showed up lol. The tow truck had dual winches hooked to her and she wouldnt budge. They tore down a old school there and back filled the basement in with dirt and it was never compacted, we had a ton of rain the last few days so it was like quick sand.

Thx for the input ... guess im gonna have to throw some spacers on her ... even though I dont want to! What do you guys suggest for size spacers .. 1.5? will that be too much you think with a 35 offset?

I'm usually never a fan of black wheels but those look great on there. I think your only problem is the wheel spacers. It'll look a lot better afterward!
