I like the black rims although you should have taken the pic on a brighter day to show more of the detail on the wheels.

i thougjt about it but didnt want to. i like it better all black, gives it a sealthy look i may leave the center caps off too cuz it looks diff with black caps, or i might put the silver caps on. plus if u have caps then u have the rist of scratching the paint when u need to change rims

wrap some electrical tape around your lug wrench a few times where the bar makes contact with the wheel, and you wont scratch the paint up.

The next time you get the tires balanced or replaced they are going to have to take the wheel weight off. You can have them use the stick on type that attach to the inside of the wheel, but the ones that are currently on there will leave a mark when removed. Looks good though.

Good work.
yea work in progress, one step at a time, thats what i planned on doing. i love the way the rims turned out. gives it an aftermarket look without being aftermarket and makes it look stealthier

thanks for the comments
