New Rims

I got these rims on closeout from a local tire wholesaler i deal with frequently. They are Akuza type359 15x8 3.25BS with 32x11.50's on them. I really like them alot, they are significantly lighter than my steelies were. No one seems to like them except me. I have heard that i am a "poser" now because they resemble the DC1's a little bit. But anyway, here they are

I paid $314.16 for 4 rims, 20 lug nuts, two lug nut sockets (you need those special lug nuts because of how recessed they are) and 4 center caps

the 98 bumper is not a direct bolt up to your truck, nor will it fit the body lines. if you do want to sell the bumper, and it is not aftermarket, let me know

i dont see what the big deal about dc'1s are everyone has them and they are overplayed. They really are not that nice.

But your rims on the other hand are nice I like those they are different. I like how the spokes are accented a different color than black.

if you go to www.capitaltire.net and click wheel search you can try them on your truck. You can change ride height, paint color, window tint etc.

ScottG. I tried and washed it before I took pics...big mistake when its 14 outside

I've only seen them on 3 trucks out here, so they're still pretty unique to me.

Those look nice, I'd be tempted to keep the bumpers black and clean them up.

I really think i'm gonna stick with the gray bumpers and re-paint them. I like the argent bumpers, but they never hold up
