looks good but what do they look like on your ride? what color is your car? i kind of like the brighter silver on darker cars.

you beat me to the punch! i was going to get these done over spring break. +REP!

its going to look awesome on the ibp!

btw what paint did you use? i like the sparkle in the paint. i have a GGP soo that would look real money on the car.

that looks like the duplicolor graphite spray can.

did you sand the rims down before painting? did you use primer?


rims where sanded down and primered .. i used duplicolor graphite .. i havent gotten a chance to install since its been raining ..
