It looks better on camera. But when you are here, black looks 100% better!

Thats what i was wondering, i would love to paint mine, but i don't want to be riding around with a busted paint job on my wheels. Would rather just rock the polished look.

I used really similar paint on my wheels. i have almost 10,000 miles on them after i pained them and there is not one chip. just make sure you don't touch them with your hands until it completely dries.

hey those look alike oh yea i have the same ones so thats why you asked me about the center caps lol makes complete sense now! i wounder about painting them black. but i just water sanded mine yesterday and now i have the shiniest / brightest rims on the west coast lol but i'm tempted to go black now.

and for your center cap question. Here is a older pic but these are the stock eagle alloys on mine. but they look great. Just sand and paint these up and your good.

and did you get the oem jeep ones or the eagle alloys one? 15x8? or 15x7?
