New "to me" tires and wheels

I made a trip to Chicago last night to buy some rims and tires that I found on craigslist. $200 took them home. The tires have 75% tread left and the rims have some surface rust. Once these tires wear out I am going to powder coat the rims black. Let me know what you think. On with the pics.....

A buddy gave me the head light covers.

New rims and tires look good. Not a fan of the headlight covers though.

Wheels are OK but as long as you like 'em... headlight covers need to go in the garbage.... you couldn't pay me to take 'em... Not safe...

Take the covers off and swap the tails. Tires and wheels look good though.
