I have the painted wheels on my truck which are close to mint. If those are in the same condition I would swap wheels with you.

So, as nasty as it was out when I picked up the new wheels I only opened 1 box. The chrome one I posted above. When I got home I opened the rest and found 2 of the chrome and 2 of these.



Called the guy, he was VERY apologetic. Said he only bought for the tires and never really looked at the wheels. Had a shop do his swap out and when he picked them up they were in boxes already. He snapped a pic of 1 and listed for sale. He offered a partial refund which I took him up on. Both our faults really, he could have been an ass and said too bad, but didn't. The rock rings will disguise the mishap and honestly I don't really care, not like she's a mall crawlin show jeep.......
