i think it looks good, just go ahead and give it a nice coat of clear coat to give it that glossy finish and I think that it will look great!!

not bad, i have the same hub caps and was thinking about doing the same thing. My car is gray so i dunno if it would look to good, but that's pretty tight on your car.

could have just taken off your hubcaps if you wanted that look.

Better yet, get black rims!

yeah i thought of that but the steelies would need paint too =/. i figured id just do the hub caps and if i didnt like it id toss them and run just steelies but i think its good enough for now. and i wish i had the extra money for rims haha.

and thanks carsrus :)

Looks good for the amount of work put into it!

When you don't have the cash for rims you gotta do what you gotta do :thumbsup:

haha everyone and their rims. i dont know if it would even be a good idea where i live. if anyone is familiar with springfield ma theyd know how poor this city is and how many huge pot holes there are around. i know 3 kids that wrecked their rims in a matter of months.

haha yeah I know what you mean. I live in a place where potholes are as big as turkeys and people love their rims(the bigger the better) I can't even begin to tell you how many bent rims I've seem.

Plush, Looks awesome, Is that flat black powder? I just put some black wheels on my expedition and had one heck of a time finding black lug nuts but it was worth it.
