Default ALCOAS installed.

I met up with ranger_1999 (Dustin) whos truck is GORGEOUS BTW! in statesville, NC to trade him my 5 spoke ranger wheels for some brushed aluminum alcoas that came off of his level II. the wheels are in perfect condition. the only thing im going to do is to get new shiny lugs. the tires are BFGs that have alot of tread on them. right now the tires are dirty, i stopped at carwash to spray cleaner on them, didnt work so good. sorry for the crappy pics, the sun wasnt coperating. i will get GOOD pics when i wash it this weekend! on tho the pics:

for reference this is before:

looks good, nice....in your opinion, does it look better? I love it! but i want some good honest opinions. i loved the other wheels too, (my second favorite ranger wheel), but the alcoas are nice. i bet if i had brand new BGFs on them with the truck all fresh and clean, it would look ten times better. today i am going to clean the tires up really good and get the white letters clean the the tires back to a good clean black. the wheels are really clean though!

i think it does, i just need to clean the tires up and get GOOD pics, maybe i can on my lunch...

Looks ALOT better doesn't seem so "stock" anymore even though those are stock wheels they just look better and go with the truck

Tint them windows and it would look really good

Tell her it will help keep the UV rays out of the truck so the interior will stay new longer and you wont have to mod the inside


Or do it now before your money becomes her money
