    ok in case the link doesn't work for everyone.
    I picked up some fjc rims to run during the winter.
    I painted them and finally got around to mounting them.
    Still deciding to run the center caps or not.
    Also got around to test fitting my rear bushwacker flares.

    Excuse the dirty truck, calgary winters with drastic temp. changes, makes washing your truck clean for about 2 minutes.

    How did you get the white tail lights? I thought the stock tail lights cannot be opened without damaging them?

    I figured white wasn't gonna be high on everyone's list but my summer wheels are black and black just kinda seems too played out so I wanted to try something different. The barrels are painted black. I'm gonna check into black lugs and black chrome valve stems that should offset things a bit better but these are just winter rims I guess.

    I masked and painted my tail lights to look like the 09 tails. They were chrome before.

    yeah too much white but it's snow camo for canadian winters. :)
    It's a work in progress.
    I'll eventually do the hood & roof black

    I have actually thought about doing this! I think it would help if we could see the white truck these are mounted on. You may have it backwards; white wheels=summer & black wheels in winter.

    Why the hood? I guess if you like it but everytime I see a black hood on a different colored car it just seems unfinished to me. The black roof looks good, some people here have done it in vinyl and it came out looking nice. I think the pics of the wheels look off because they're so bright white and the truck is dirty. Any pics of them both clean or both dirty? I'd bet it'll look better.
