    Looks good, drakeoz71!

    Now that I see a little closer picture, you could even sand off the paint on the little step between the spokes and the rim. I've seen some production wheels on here that have that look. I know, this would probably have been a better pre-paint suggestion than bringing it up now...

    Everybody is blacking out which is cool but not for me(white truck) So what about whiting out? I'm gonna paint all black plastic white and get chrome acsents on things. But i can't afford chrome rims so i was wondering how it'd look to powdercoat the stock ones white? Might look weird but just wondering

    Like how you used what you had! Plus it turned out great!
