Should I get them painted FLAT BLACK w a red stripe around the lip?? I think itll look better thn all chrome and thn maybe paint the chrome bumper burgandy. Wat you guys think let me know?
I also had some OEM 18/19 06 C6 wheels on it for a week but tires were too small and the chassis was too low to the ground. I could have changed to the right tire size but the rears are 19x10 and WAY too expesive so I just sold em. Rode very nice tho light wieght wheels.

I usually always prefer black rims to chrome. I don't like how flashy those rims are chrome..they're not my taste. I'd say go with the black, I think it will look awesome with your truck!

Powder coat would be better and way more durable than paint

I like the chrome wheels btw. Black is a huge pain in the butt to keep clean because they show everybody from dirt to scratches. At least with chrome its very easy to clean and they compliment the all chrome bumper as well. But that's my opinion. It is your truck and you can do whatever you want to it. But if you do decide to paint those wheels black, def get them powder coated.

Stock C6 size, they fit just not the rear 19x10 wheels, (too wide) they will fit with spacers but the 20s in the pics the tire size is 275/40/20, front 245/45/20

the lowering kit is Belltech, still have it in my garage, currently on sale on seatte craigslist.

And as far as rubbing, it all depends on the offset of the wheel, my 20s had a +35mm offset which look great in the rear but stuck out in the front a lil and YES rubbed, hence why I put Vette/camaro/trans am wheels, they have a 50+mm offset (stock 4wd blazer wheels have 50+mm offset)

so you are saying you would run the c6 wheels over the 20's? so the spacers removed the 19 x10 rubbing issue?? what size were ur tires?

I woud just because they are aluminum instead of heavy chrome steel. Yes you will need spacers to fit the 19x10s or else they hit the chasis.. rear tires were 275/45/20 and 275/50/r19 (I liked the staggered tire look)
