Looks good! I am loving those wheels, the only reason I didn't get them is because I would spend my entire day cleaning them every time I wash the truck...

Thanks guys!

cintocrunch - The wheels are actually really easy to clean, which was a surprise to me too. A little detail spray and about 2-3 mins per wheel and they look great. Do it!

Did the plastidip myself. Got the spay at Lowes. Once you get over the fear that you're spray painting your truck with rubber, it's really easy to do. I ended up doing the door emblems twice because I didn't use thick enough coats and still had some chrome showing through. But 4 heavy coats worked perfectly the second time around. Definitely something you can do yourself.

Very impressed so far. They've done great on wet pavement, mud, loose gravel and washboard. Virtually no road noise, even at highway speeds. Not too stiff either, despite being E class. Looking forward to trying them out in snow.

I will. I am wanting to put tires on with lift and can't decide 285/75/16 or 255/85/16. Did you look at either size? Also, your pic with the bike. Is that at LBL in West Ky? If not it's only about 3 hrs from you and we ought to meet sometime to ride. We have a great group. I have been your way for some road races and on my way to Kansas City for cyclocross races.
