Default no more black wheels

got bored of the paint scheme i went with on my classic 2's. painted the centers black with a polished ring but i realized that my truck looked better when i first bought the wheels, solid polished aluminum

how they were


Today doing the front wheels


front passenger side wheel done



i still need to do the rears but the paint came off very easily with Citristrip


I'll update this when the rears are done

The design of the black did look sharp, but the chrome adds the extra "cool" factory to the rig.

You could always do two black and two chrome, then rotate the colors around randomly. That would provide a "unique" factor to you truck.

he should just leave the passenger side wheels black and polish the driver side. that way he gets the best of both worlds.

personally i liked them black. but hey. its your truck. either way it looks good.
