    I just bought my '03 DC about 6 weeks ago. It had a set of these Ultra Motorsport 15x8" wheels (32x11.50 BFGs) on it. The wheels themselves aren't that bad, but the previous owner told me that a carwash attendant had sprayed them with wheel cleaner and it took the finish off of them. They were in pretty bad shape when I got the truck with lots of pitting and oxidation.

    Over the weekend I went the cheap route and painted them to hopefully make them look a little better. 2 coats Rustoleum Automotive primer, 3 coats Rustoleum Industrial Gloss Black, 2 coats Rustoleum Clear Coat. I think they look much better than before. We'll see how it holds up.

    That looks really good, but seeing them side by side makes me like the silver better. At least you got rid of the pitting and oxidation! :thumbsup:
