I would go with the GXP wheels. There is just something about them.

They are pretty much the same wheel, so I'd get the GXPs just because they are cheaper.

$700 for a set of used (stock) rims is really high though. When I had my truck I bought a set of stock 20" wheels for it and only paid $300, and that included the tires.
