    Unless you're parked, they're gonna look the same. They pretty much look the same anyway.

    When I first threw my MT's on my truck I was a little disappointed with how shiny they were. Some tire shine will help but on a clean truck the wheels will just stand out a lot. Realistically though my truck stays clean for a day or two at most after its cleaned and once the wheels get a little dusty they dull up enough. Still very happy with my purchase.
