I think these rims look awesome! I put them on my all white 2008 avalanche. I have a black brush guard and black running boards. The black in the rims really brings those all together and really pops from the white. But I didn't want all black rims, cause then they just get lost in the tire. There is a perfect contrast of black and machined. I also love the design/style. Some of the rim styles get curvy / almost muscle car looking. I saw that a lot in Fuel's designs. The design of these rims is a really sharp looking design. While the spokes are machined, the center cap is chrome, which visually pulls together my chrome door handles and bolts in my fender flares. I liked that I could get a 20" rims and it still be 9" wide. This is my daily driver and I didn't need a 12" or so wide set up. And last but not least, you can't beat the price. By far the best rim for the money. I was only shopping for 20", so I don't know exactly how the other sizes stack up, but I would assume similarly. These 20" helos were just a little over $200/ each, while most other decent 20" (KMC XDs, Fuel, etc) would run you $280 or $300 each. I wrapped them in 33" BFGoodrich AT KO2s, highly recommend that tire, but I will write a separate review for those. I went up a size on my tires (31" to 33") and went from a street tire to an All Terrain and only lost 0.1 on my MPG.
If you are shopping around, trust me, Tire Rack is where its at, especially if you plan to get a rim and tire package. I shopped everywhere, local shops, other websites, etc. They had great prices on their rims and tires, their tire pressure sensors were the cheapest, and they came mounted and balanced. Even with shipping, they were the cheapest and easiest option. I'm not sure if I can add a photo, but I will try!
