Don't do Soft 8s, ruin your truck. Xp11k something with a sonic blue truck painted his DSG and they came out great.

Duplicolor Wheel Paint works really well, I think they make it in a gray too

haha i wasn't expecting to see a pic of my truck in this thread. You really do like my wheels Scott. haha i don't blame you i can't stop staring at them myself.

as for the wheels Id keep them and paint them, just for the fact that they are alloys and lighter weight then the steelies. I always thought it would look nice with everything painted gray or black except for the face of the fx4 wheel. A lot more work masking them off but i think it would look cool.
