Nooooooo! That sucks about the DSG Alcoas. I think the classic locks would look great though. Just make sure you keep your other wheels and tires for winter. I know some people have problems with their Classic II's in the winter with the finish and stuff but I'm not sure how they would hold up with paint.

No i haven not ordered them yet, and 3" spindle lift with shackles.

And yeah these wheels will never see winter. I'm going to paint my current rims black when they come off and mount snow tires on them.

Dang thats no good, Sorry to hear that, I know how it feels. I was really looking forward to seeing those on your truck. Those M/T's will look good on your Truck.

I personaly wouldent add anything to them. I think the clasic locks would look awsome black with DSG rings but i wouldnt want to buy new rims and paint them.

the classic locks are very susceptible to corrosion and need to be polished all the time, especially with the lock ring because it holds water and dirt

i think black or dsg would look good on your truck but id get something without as much maintenance as the classic II's. if i had the money or could get decent money out of mine id get some teflon coated American racing atx's.

like these http://www.4wheelparts.com/Wheels/AT...%2fPAX39656865

if you're so amped on painting, get some new wheels and look into getting them powdercoated. can't go wrong with that. and its usually 40ish bucks a wheel. well worth it for the extra protection it provides.
