I'm going to be honest here...I love the truck, but I am not feeling the wheels at all. The rims look way to cheap and plain, IMO.

i would go black, but then im afraid unless you look close they'll just look like steelies. which i dont want.

and the polished look really brings out all the details i think..

idk' we'll see. im gonna try and polish them up today, then go from there. these will be a pain to prep for paint since there's so many cracks and crevices.
