Icon10 Getting Some New Shoes!!

The day has finally arrived, finally got some new tires and rims for the ol'4k... i know, i know... your probably asking yourself why i would even want to change having such ballin' doves... guess i have tired of the 15 x 6 flavour, but now i am moving up to some serious baller status, you could say true wheel ***** status...

So, here is what i have been rolling around on...

sorry for the crappy cell iphone pics

that was the dew and light mist of rain... need to find a matching color in a can or find someone to mix some up for me and get a gun, as i have some body work to do. thanks, wouldn't mind painting a darker satin version of what it is, so it would look like that first photo... hmm.
