    I think that those rims look ghetto imo but your truck looks better than with those black painted rims.

    Now remove those badges, remove those goofy chrome side steps, color match your chrome grille red, and PlastiDip or paint that front chrome bumper black!

    I would've gone with a more satin black, but that's just my opinion. Looks good regardless!

    Yeah, I may try a higher gloss paint, i've never painted rims so this was more of a trial run. any suggestions from people how have done this before would be greatly appreciated. I used high heat engine paint. I live down here in texas and it gets pretty hot. but any way you slice it, it looks way better then with those dumb rims and low profile tires
