Finally! New Wheels!

Finally ditched my ugly American Racing wheels for some black Soft 8's. Got em today from Quadratec and got em put on, too. I love how it looks!


Better view of the old wheels.

I think the black rims look the best on white jeeps. I have been thinking really hard about getting some for my jeep but i'm still thinking about it.

I like the look of the black wheels too. Shinny is just to bling for my tastes. Good choice on the wheels

I'm a virgo so I like thing to match and go together.

I have a set of hood locks that are silver and I'm glad I have them but them being silver drives me up a wall! LOL

You could say I like black rims only on white vehicles.

Oh, ok, makes sense. I wanna pull off my door and hood and windshield hinges and sand blast em and them paint em black. Still considering doing the whole front grille panel black, too.

All that is on a long list of custom stuff I want to do to mine as well.

Thinking about rhino lining of some sort on mine but right now I have the black plastic inserts and they look GREAT on white jeeps.

It's alright...I'm pretty sure I'll just spray the whole thing black. If it looks bad I'll just add more black until it looks right.

LMAO

I need to upload the snow pictures I have on my digital cam anyway. The subtle black of the inserts really do look good. I think the rhino lining looks pretty good specially because the road tar and bugs tend to be a pita to get off the front grill.

I think paint will be OK for me. What I really want to Herculine is my whole tub. Think I'll just break down and do it one of these weekends.

I was thinking about doing that once it warms up.
