glad i could help, Patrick will tell ya Trent is a good guy so no worries there! now all you need are the lugs and a good cleaning!!

I was told that the Powerball cone was the BEST way to polish these after sanding on them with fine grit sandpaper, go ahead and make them things look like new before you have em mounted

haha yeah its aluminum too. When I put the new wheels on, it looks even duller than it already is! makes the truck look bad with shiny wheels, shiny grill and tow hooks, and a weathered toolbox! I even take and wash the toolbox in and out so it doesnt stink and it stays organized as hell. Tools on the passngerside with a tray above for my mevhanic gloves, hitch reciever, and tie downs. On the driver side kept clean for clothes or whatever.

Also when I eat out or get something to go, that shit doesnt go in the truck unless i eat in there. If im carrying it home, it goes in the toolbox, I dont want that shit smelling up my cab so when i open it in the morning, i get the smell of food

you can also use the eastwood kit if you want, that's what I use on all of my metal polishing. It comes with nice buffing cones to get all the cracks and such):
http://www.eastwood.com/eastwood-buffing-kit.html

here's some pics of the it in use (keep in mind this was just a simple clean up, I wasn't going for perfection per customer's needs):






you will still have to sand them down though...

Clinton, Trent texted me, they are packaged up and on the way to the post office. he said that Paypal should have emailed you a tracking number; if not, let me know.

BTW, they are coming from High Point, NC

I have an extra set of 33's I may use them for the winter with the spare rims. I already had an offer of 200.00 for them but I don't know if I should get rid of them or not.
