I don't think I like it but I think its because of the center caps throwing the whole white and black scheme off... Maybe Paint the caps too... Otherwise nice rig

i definately like it man! gives the whole truck a new tude.



Quick question.....i thought those wheels have a chrome cover that snaps onto the wheel, like a wheel cover? Maybe i'm mistaken. Alot like the dodge 20" wheels.

Yeah, it has a plastic chrome cover that snaps on. i just pulled that off before i started. If i ever decide to change my mind i can throw those back on and you'll never know.

You need raised white letters to make the black rim jump out

Looks like a mini Ranger Interceptor. Definitely a better look.
Some bigger meats, like some wide BFG Radial T/A's, would be sweet.

If you read i didn't paint the chromes.


It's just the cheap steel rims, it had "Wheel Covers"

I took off the wheel covers and painted the cheap rims. If i wanna go back to the fake chrome **** i can just pop em back on.



and honestly this is one of those mods i did because i dont have money.

im not being an *** everyones entitled to their opinion and i believe that spray painting ones rims is a ghetto mod. Im not calling crackerstien out at all, cause the homemade tonneau cover he made a while back turned out awesome, i just cant say the same for the rims it just makes his truck look cheap.

Things are always hit or miss. Not everyone is going to like everything 100% of the time. What matters is i like it and even if i didn't i can throw the wheel covers back on and you'd never know i did anything.

BTW - I posted these pictures up so if anyone else was wanting to paint their cheap stock wheels they can see what it would look like without doing it.
