The rims & tires I got of ebay. The rims were $550 & the tires $500. Whene I said that they where allmost done I meant that they are allready mounted & balanced, but I still need to finish 3 more centers to look like the one I posted. Then I still need to take the car my mechanic to fix a couple of things before I install the rims on the car.

I bought the rims from this guy:

These are a little more expensive, but they are crome. Mine are painted.

What brand are those wheels? Also, if you know specifics, like model name, number, etc. I'd like to find out more about them. Those really look nice.

I was looking at my pictures & noticed that my tires are 265 & not 255 like I stated at the begining. & by the way I still dont know if they will fit.

Did you ever find out what brand the rims were? Also what kind of paint did you use for your interior?

I confidently say that 255 will work without a problem, 265...I dunno, you'll probably have to modify the wheel well in order to accommodate those wide boots. Other then that, it looks amazing.

For the record, I LOVE wide tires...

here is a link to a site where they sell them at a good price:
http://customwheelsmarket.com/verde-...--silver-.html
or you can wait for ebay & save some more money.
