You need tp spray that backside of the wheels. When you wash your truck do that first so your not wallowing around in mudwater.

same as mine. I didnt do this on my rims but I have on previous rims...

I took the wheel off the truck, flipped over so the backside is facing up, cleaned it real good, then rattle canned em' black. You cant see the dirt as well when they are black.
