Alloys look okay with push button doors. I think they look weird with lift up and galv trim versus painted trim on the bed.

I don't like deep dish alloys, I would get a set of Boosts before using those. Steelies in white would probably look good.

Also, if you keep the alloys, get some wheel spacers so that you can run centre caps.

I know I'm in the minority on this board, I'd ditch them for freestyles. I think deep dishes are some of the ugliest wheels ever made on any vehicle, and I dig the NAS look.

Agree! The deep dish are the nicest looking aluminum Rover wheels IMO.

For that red 3 door I would vote steels for sure as the plastic hub/hub cap sticks out without spacers and just doesn't look right. I'd say silver or white. The 265's look good too.
