    Getting my Classic Lock Simulated Beadlock rings powerdercoated tomorrow morning and was wondering on which color? I orginally decided on red but now I'm torn between black or red. The pic is with no rings at all to get an idea what the truck looks like.

    I said red but I think all 3 would look good. Even without the beadlocks it looks good.;)

    well i had ordered the red rings from 4wheelparts and waited over a month then finally called and asked and now they say Mickey Thompson discontinued the rings for all except 15,16,17" rims. So I took to the powdercoater this afternoon to get sandblasted and will pick them up tomorrow afternoon. Got refunded around 240 and powdercoat is only 20/ring so 100 cash for all 5! which isnt bad at all!

    325/65R18 Mickey Thompson MTZ's. Just got my 2nd set. Got around 42000 out of my last set with 3 rotations. Gonna rotate every 3000 and see how it goes this time. By far my favorite set of mud tires and i've ran mud grapplers, mtr's(old style), buckshot mudders, mickey thompson baja radials, and swampers.

    I voted stay polished, but just to break the color up a little with all the black.

    I have a the black TRD (fake) beadlocks and I may just leave the rings off. My truck is SSM and the all black gives some contrast.

    For FWIW, I think a lot depends on truck color.

    Very nice rig, by the way :cool:
