Default Finally...New Rims

After a year with the stock 17", 20 spoke, painted rim....I replaced them with some chromies.

Nothing too fancy, as I don't really like to much of the 'Bling-Bling' look. (no big spinning disks, etc.) Just a simple 5 spoke, that will be ALOT easier to keep clean.

What do you think?

Arggh...2 questions:

1) How do I move this to 'Your Ride', which is where I should have put it.

2) How did you embed the image? I tried to do that, using the img and /img, (Brackets left off purposely) but the darn link for car domain looked like it was 400 characters long and wouldn't paste in.

Right click the image above and select properties. Now highlight the url (http:// etc) right click and select copy.
Thats what goes inbetween the 'img' tags (without spaces).

You cant move this anywhere only a mod or admin can....maybe one will pop in and move it for you

Just a note:

If there is any interest, I can do a post about painting the calipers. Were not talking rocket science, but I did learn a few things, that could make it easier for anyone wanting to do this.

I painted them without removing the caliper from the hydraulic line which saves a bunch of time, and potential bleeding headaches.

Let me know.

Chromes look sweet!
I was thinking about doing my calipers soon. A post about it would be real nice. I was thinking either red or silver.
