Paint work looks good. Still unsure if I like them or not, though. It's like they are missing something...hmm.

I don't like stock 1st gen wheels on a 2gn at all. But if you like it then good for you.

And your tires are very very brown. lol

I think TNK needs these tires on his creme (tan) colored wheels. Then his wheel/tire setup would look like a 3 Muskateers. :lol:

The wheels themselves, the paint job looks good, but they look weird on the car.

Judging by how dirty the car is I'd say that has something to do with his tires.

OP: I just moved into a house that is down a mile dirt road. I feel your pain lol

I think they would make nice winter wheels. I'm with everyone else though. They don't feel right. Good paint quality though.

Dude, no matter how much I can't sleep I don't think I ever said, "Welp, I guess I'll go paint my rims"!
Kudos to you. :thumbup:
