    After too much spent at the tire store
    Liquid Metal wingman,Cooper Zeon LTZ 285/50R-20
    noticed just a little rub when hitting a dip during a med fast turn.
    I can live with it as I want to get rid of the mud flaps anyway and it will be a good excuse to the wife for a upgrade.

    I'm gearing up to paint my stock rims black, get some red lug nuts, and paint the drums and calipers red- It's a sharp look.


    IMHO- Chrome on your truck wouldn't be so hot-Red and black shouldn't have chrome too.

    A little bling is good on almost everything .
    The trick is to not overdo the bling.
    I will most likely get nerf bars or side steps and the ywill be Black and stainless.
    The front already has chrome around the grill and the headlights.
    I want smoked tails and the rear bumper is already half chrome.
    The whells have a chrome ring already and I think that helps them look better as you get the size of 20s but not over bearing because of the black.
    Painting the drums and calipers are needed as they will surface rust over time and I dont like that rust .
