By far. I wanted something permanent. Obviously it looks better in person

Looks great. Who did them for you and if you don't mind me asking, what was the cost? I'm originally from SW Minnesota, down Marshall way. I had been considering something like this for my new ST rims, and although today's gearheads seem to dislike chrome, being old school I'd consider that also.

Thanks for all the kind words, guys! I had them done at SE Custom Powder Coating in Savage, Minnesota. I worked through the Ford dealership in Shakopee to have them done. I paid about $460 grand total. $100 per rim, and that included new valve stems PLUS rebalancing them and putting them back on. I was told they did amazing work so I was willing to pay anything.

I just might have to. Maybe when it dries up a bit (It's been raining for days!)
