What type(not necessarily brand) should I get or stay away from?

Polished, plated, etc...

Gonna be for a truck that will see some decent off road action.

As far as looks go, I don't want a lot of bling-bling. Just a good looking 5 spoke design 20 inch.

Thanks
John

well if you are going for off-road, i wouldnt go for the best wheel out there. i dont know how well you handle dings, chips, scratches, etc. for light off-roading truck, i would go with a chrome rim b/c they are much easier to clean, easier to repair, and look sharp. the deep polished with clearcoat look almost as good, but if you chip the coating, it could start to peel and just look like shit. the advantage of the clear coat is, it cleans up as easy as a chrome rim....you dont have to polish either of them, you can just wipe them clean. finally, if you get just a polished wheel w/o the clearcoat, you will have to get some metal polish to make the wheel look good as new, instead of just soap and water. big pain in the ass!!! hope that helps.

what type of tire are you going to run that is a 20" tire, and has an agressive enough tread? i wanted to find one for my H2, and i didnt know where to look. thanks...

RedSnake, thanks for the advice. As far as the tires go I honestly have no idea where I am going to get them. I just assumed since the 20's have been around for a while that tires would be easy to find. I will let you know if I run across some.
