Not a big fan of factory wheels, but that looks pretty damn good.

If you don't mind so terribly, would you post a few pictures in a couple months of how they still look? I'm kind of on the fence on whether or not to do this to my piggy. Seeing their durability will be a critical factor! lol.
I still freaking love how they look on your rig.

My truck is under the knife with a slow moving SAS. I have 15" wheels as my new wheels. I'll have my stock wheels up for sale coming up in September.

I've had mine since the beginning of summer(I think) and they still look GREAT. Maybe that's because they're not on my truck yet? LOL

These look great. I really like the powdercoated look.

I was thinking of powdercoating on mine but go a step futher and do the "indents" to match the truck color. I wonder how hard/expensive that would be.

I dont know about where you live but it was really expensive to get mine powder coated so i bought the 50 dollars in materials and i think it turned out pretty damn good.
