BTW, this is what they looked like before. These pics are of the "good" wheels before. The pictures posted above are the result of 7+ hours of polishing and buffing.






I was extremely pissed to say the least when I recieved them from blow03ss. They were not as he described. Two even had gouges, but we sanded and buffed them out. I conveniently recieved pictures of only the one that was already buffed and the other pictures of them on his truck had to have been when they were new.
O well, the beauty of billet is that it can be fixed. (With great dedication) They look awesome now so that's what matters.

Thanks everyone! I think the tires are kinda big, but I'm daily driving it in New Orleans, so I need em. Plus they came with the wheels, so I had no complaints. When these wear out I'll probly go down to a 40 series.

You're right about that. It's a totally different look, and I like em wayyy better than my old wheels. The only downside is all the polishing required to keep em lookin good.

That really sucks about the accident too. It sucks that it happened with shows coming up soon.
