Truck is looking nice. How are you liking the look so far?

I think all black trucks deserve chrome.

So, whats next in your plans?

Oh, and as a reminder.....no more mudholes.

Thanks guys for a little more info on the wheels they are 16x8 Ion Alloy 171 wheels. I paid $435 shipped. Rimzoneonline.com highly recommended. The tires are the same 265/70/16.

now you need to go pick up some Busch Super Shine Aluminum Polish (stronger than Meguiar's or Mothers) and a Meguiar's DynaCone. The Busch Super Super Shine is worth every penny IMO. Its a petroleum distillate, so it does have a slit smell, but man does it work. And the Meguiar's Cone is far superior to Mothers Poweball or Powercone by far for wheels

After polishing, i recommend their Wax and sealant as well man, good stuff. BTW, all this stuff is what truckers use on their aluminum wheels, so its gotta be good lol

ONLY use Simple Green to clean rims and tires (well aside from car wash soap). Wesley's Bleach White will spot the rims in a heartbeat.

Simple Green isn't ideal for wheels really. It corrodes aluminum. I'd recommend only car wash soap or if you really need a wheel cleaner to buy some from a website like AutoGeek
