Your truck looks much better with that wheel/tire combo. I love that color.

I work outta town during the week, and i get home on the weekends.....wait i shoudn't of said that now someone is gonna get it!!LOL J/K.

P.s. Oh yeah the paint we used was Duplicolor flat black. We also used an adhesive promoter before we sprayed it. had some cracklin in the paint but i dont think i was from that. Sems works great too but not with the adhesive promoter! I was impressed with the turn out.

Josh Hosner FYI I already have dealt with the powder coating wheels deal before, your stock push threw center caps WILL NOT work the new thickness of the bore hole will be smaller you will need a smaller center cap

Mic your inner hole after its done and summit you can look up all push threw closed end center caps by size and order the right one...

Yeah i thought of that too. i plan on using the factory chrome caps that come on the 04 edge wheels. May paint them to match. Mike said he didn't think he would like it but i figured i would atleast try it and see how they look. I don't really care for the caps on it now anyway's. Appreciate the heads up!!

WOW!!! I think it looked a thousand times better with the old rims. Good deal on the interior though the paint looks better. Your friend is freaking nuts painting them rims black! That's just a waste of a good set of rims.

might want to double check on that I know Mickey thompson and american racing stock SNAP on center caps with those special lugs WILL NOT work because of how inset the lugs are the cap can not grab onto it..

Eagle Alloy and another brand i cant remember Procomp i think WILL work tho the lug doesnt go as far into the rim...

He's got my stock lugs on them right now. So if he runs the stock center caps he'll be fine. I just dont like them on aftermarket wheels lol.
