it can look good. but you would need some more mods to go with it.

That does look hawt - I know I'm lacking tint among other things, but in due time. I think tint is next on my list, but in all seriousness my 4x4 comes before screwing with my DD.

My rims are pretty rough. The previous owner painted over the alloy with cheap paint and a thin coat of primer. I thought about repainting them until I seen this thread. I just bought a couple cans of black from lowes for $6. I'll be trying it out on Thursday. I'll post pics when I'm done. Hope it looks good.
