If you are doing the raised white-lettering on the tires, do both sides of the tire as they need "balance" in the look (as in three o'clock and nine o'clock positions). That'* if there'* anything to paint in.
yeah, that was a big diilema i had to think about for a while, but if the stuff only lasts two weeks them im definitely not gunna do both sides

woah there matt...are you actually MISSING a lug stud? and a lug nut on ANOTHER wheel?

Did you not see my thread about the guy and his wheel coming off when he was driving because he was missing a lug stud? Not smart there matt. Replace those studs!

GETTING back on topic here...

Those look pretty damn good! they really draw away from the rest of the car. very very nice.
