    So I painted the bumpers but i'm bored so I'm thinking of going from a 16x8 to a 16x10 wheel with Bushwacker fender flares. Wondering if I should paint the flares and mirrors red. Also I'm demolding that strip down the side of the truck. Photoshop Experts?

    I think it would be too much red if you painted mirrors, flares and demolded. Does need tint though.

    Huh. Maybe if I left the door handles black. I might try painted flares and decide if I want to do the mirrors later.

    The rear ones have some warping that I can't correct. Figured I'd replace all 4. The Bushwacker pocket flares are 1 inch wider which would work well with the 16x10s and rear spacers.

    I think I'm gonna do this. Color the flares, demold, leave the mirrors black. Messaged a friend from back in college and she hooked me up.
