I think the white needs to be a little smaller with some type of black sticker in it. Its a neat idea though.

Nice paint job, but you missed a spot on each rim.


In all seriousness, the paint looks nice, but I agree that you need to break up the white a little bit.

Is there a reason that you did not spray the center caps? and did you paint the spare?

i was gonna add a jeep logo on all the white spokes and clear over it but i ran out of time...

as far as the center caps, the same goes for those no time, i work and go to school 5 days a week 18 hrs a day so i do what i can with what i have.

the spare is the not the same its one of the previous rims untill i can pick up a extra stock rim, but i was thinking of painting that all white with one black spoke.

i appreciate all the feedback good and bad i just was curious as to what others thought of it.

i think they would look better on a non gay green color jeep as well

i went pretty cheap and quick, red scotch brighted the shit out of them, wax and grease, 3 coats of black, dry, masked off for the white, 3 coats of white, un masked whole rim and 6 coats of clear, lighter to heavier with proper flash time....

im intrested to see how they stand up to abuse. oh i used duplicolor wheel paint as well
