    is there anything you can do to make the base steel wheels look a little better,other than changing them out.

    IMO I would take them off and get them powder coated black. There are a few people that have done it on here.

    for the price it would take to powder coat you could buy a different style of steelies. I ended up with Cragar Soft 8's from Summit Racing.

    Sorry no offense to anyone, but the 5 luggers just look ridiculous. They look like a cartoon truck with those micro wheels. The 2nd gen body is oversized and paired with mini wheels, it makes the whole thing look a bit goofy.

    No spacers required
