i think its doing very well. I haven't seen any places where it has chipped off. But I haven't hit anything to flex it more than usual. Other than a few places along the egdes where I didn't do a great of painting it, I think it looks great. I plan on doing the plastic on the rear bumper when I get a free weekend.

My back bumper cover turned out nice. It's holding up real well.

i have those rims on my truck...

stock lugnuts work, but they are ugly...

so unless you are running stock centercaps (i am), i would get some aftermarket lug nuts to make it look better

Get the new lugs, I think you will need new valve stems(I think, don't quote me).

most places will just pop new ones on, they are only around 2.50 a pop, you might even convince the tire shop to throw them in free with the tires
