new wheels and fixed interior paint

Well as much as I loved the wheels I had I really needed something that wasn't so wide. So me and my buddy josh swapped. I got his chrome alcoa's and he got mine. He's gonna get them painted flat black. Will be ordering his new 33's and we will be doing his bodylift in the next 2 weeks roughly.

I also got tired of my nasty chipped and cracking interior i've painted a billion times lol. So me and josh sanded them down real good and I flat blacked them. Look very close to stock. I need to pull them out and lightly sand them again to get a nice smooth texture then hit it with another coat. Very close to factory again! Anyway here's the pics.

I too like it alot better now. I don't know about you old twin, but I kind of got tired of the tires sticking way out, esp considering all I had was a t-bar crank, and AAL's and shackles.

How do you like the Alcoas? I wanted a set of the gun metal ones, but heard that those rims are lighter then the stockers and can bend easier from bumps and pot holes. Any truth to that?
