You want opinions on how they LOOK, or something else?

With their pale white skin you could always just strap them to the front bumper and use them as a off-road light !!!

I'm old school. I like simple factory steel wheels. Wimpy's new rims I like. The Hummer wheels I have seen on Astro's look cool.
Since you asked..... I don't care for any of the choices shown. Too trendy for me. But who cares enjoy what you like! :)

Soft 8's are hard to beat huh. If you are offroading much, steel is the way to go so if you bend them on a rock, you can bash them back into place... alloy don't roll like that.

Good news is... you can tell exactly what they would look like on your van!

I'm digging the fuels, I think they would look good!


I'm the opposite, I don't like many factory rims or solid black rims...it looks like a hubcap fell off...even tho my factory rims are painted black. lol

Every time I see this pop up I think that it is the ''where's my weep hole thread'' popping back up.

Nice van.

Seems like the ones on your van aren't too different looking style wise from the 2 options. Have you considered just getting your existing rims powder coated. I would imagine they could mask off the lip to make some silver show through.

Or... I like the first ones...

On a side note, this is what I will be running on mine.
However they will be powdercoated a bright bronze.

Wheel poll? mark me down as being in favour of them. Can't imagine a van without them........
My personal preference is a "wagon wheel" or a painted Ralleye; with or without caps. Not sure I get the whole "Blingy" wheel trend on off-road vehicles, but it's YOUR van. Put whatever you want on it and be happy with your choice.
FWIW, I like Redheads, too.
