They look horrible! Haha.. [Thx though]
Uhm.. I'm thinking when I get them, before I have them installed.. I'll buy a couple cans of clear coat and spray away..

Do you think that would be a good idea?

Hm, actually... what's the odds I could get you two set the wheels next to your truck and take a picture? =) That would be a good comparison I guess....

The rims should already have a clear coat on them. If i was going to add to that, I'd only use auto grade clear, not the rattle can.

That duplicolor clear does not hold up well. I used it to clear my rims after I cleaned them up and they looked horrible after a few months. They brake dust ate right through the clear. If you do it, send them to JTsmith and have him powder coat them.

Damn, you really Can't beat the price... but how's the quality? Also... I'm leaning away from black rims..

And.. Awesome Job.. That's perfect..

The BS issue is kind of confusing me on the websites.. I did read the sticky..

Will I have rubbing issues with my 31" No Lift, and 15x8 rims?.......

I guess what I need to know is.. what is the Offset and Backspacing of the stock tear drops.. and how far could I push it with 31's and no lift?

But I don't know what kind of BS/Offset I need....
I know I want my new rims to be 15x8...
I have 31" tires and no lift.

I've honestly thought about it, but with mine.. I think I prefer chrome/anything not black... lol..

The trim, bumper's... grill..ect... I just would rather not have black...

Any information on the BS/Offset I need for 31" and 15x8 no lift?
