truck in winter-mode

Well since i never got around to throwing clear coat on my wheels, i took them off for the winter so they don't get pitted. They will be clearcoated over winter time and be on again in the spring.
its such a smooth ride on the all terrains but it feels so weird and my truk duz NOT lewk gud!

I think your truck looks fine like that. Just need some center caps and your set

Not a bad look for it, but it definitely needs the centercaps on it.

I've run my Baja wheels through the past 2 winters and they still look like new. You Just have to make sure you polish them once a month and put some wax on them.
