    Default Possible Wheel Idea

    This is what I have been thinking of doing for awhile. I won't be buying wheels for a little while so I have been thinking of painting mine like this.(Did this on paint so the lines may not be perfect, just gives a better idea)

    I think I'm going to start sending you my pictures and ideas so you can show me what my ideas will look like. Either that, or I could learn to do it, but that sounds too much like effort.

    As far as the wheels, I think it looks nice. It's very clean and reserved, but ties it together.

    To Be Completed (Eventually):
    6" BDS Suspension lift | KingShocks Front and Rear Coil Overs | 4.56 Gears | 35" A/Ts (TBD) | Cervinis 07-12 Silverado Ram Air Hood | Fab Fours Front Winch Bumper (CS07-H2051-1) | Fab Fours Full Size Rear Bumper (CS07-W1850-1) | RX-2 Series Main Grille (Black) | Line-x Bed and wheel wells | Skid Plates | Rizor Automated Tonneau Cover | Custom Bed Insert | RBP RX-3 Series Nerf Bars | Kenwood Excelon DNX9990HD | JL Audio Stealthbox (2x500RMS) | JL Audio HD 1200/1 Class D Mono Amp | JL Audio C5-653 Components (Front) | JL Audio C5-650 Components (Rear) | JL Audio Slash v2 300/4v2 Class A/B Amp

    This is the wheel that I'm trying to resemble. I really like this wheel and mine aren't to different so for now I was wanting to paint mine and wait awhile to buy wheels

    I think it looks sweet. What if you left a small stripe in between the holes chrome? Just a little contrast to the wheel.

    My guess as to what he means would be a stripe from (or near) the lug to the outer rim.

    I really like that look. It's like you're trying to go for a blacked out look but you didn't want to over do it. Very simple and clean.

    Another idea, is if you didn't want to go full black you could try dupli-color's black chrome treatment there instead.

    Color-matched mirror covers and emblem
    20% tinted windows - 6" eyebrow
    Black rear fender-wells

    2" Rear drop shackle
    Tailgate light bar
