I told you I couldn't resist and threw them on. They'll probably be on for the rest of the winter now. Oh well, i'll just have to keep up on them. I think it looks ALOT better than before!!

Looks cool, did you get the center caps too? I was lookin' for a truck just like yours before I bought my black zq8, I love the pewter color. That is pewter metalic, right?
Yeah, he gave me the rims, tires and centercaps. I'm very happy with the way it looks now, I was able to get rid of those 205-75-15 balloon tires off it. And yes, it is pewter, very sharp color when its all clean.

No ones said anythign yet, but whats up with the rims and centercaps? Did he strip the paint and polish them for you? And are those custom centercaps? I dunno, maybe its the pic but those rims look nothing like stock.

Yeah, basically he did all the hard work. He stripped the clear coat and polished the rims to get them totally smooth. Then the centercaps he took some stock aluminum and glued it to the existing caps. He did a very good job with them as nobody realizes they are stock rims.

looking good man....

I stripped all the clear off he wheels. Then sanded with 220-2000 grit sand paper. Then when they were smooth I polished them with a high speed polisher. Then he explained how I did the centercaps.
