New wheels.. sort of...

I got the wheels on, there a smidge soft yet... and I found out my passengher side rear brear is completely phucked... like beyond phucked. and to think we just changed them 6 weeks ago, My neighbor suggested it to be the wheel cylinder...

black or grey... decisions decisions... front is gray, back is black...






decided on the grey....


























I still cant believe I painted my wheels... wtf was I thinkin? ya it looks nice and all, I just cant believe I went ahead and did it.

BTW, an FYI... I used 1.5 cans of spray paint, 5 coats each.

I cant believe you used spraypaint, should have went with a gun. Looks good but you need to clearcoat. I do like and gives me ideas.
