    Default Laid some paint

    Well I have been wanting to redo my wheels since I got em so I did a test one today.

    So here is what they looked like on my car before.

    Something different without going over the top and left field. It's suppose to be a metal red.

    Thanks guys. It makes me feel better about my choice when other people like it.

    Going to flood it with some pics now but will get some better day time ones to show it better.

    I thought the first pic looked good,, but wow. These are going to look killer. I dig off the wall color wheels. It's something that's kinda growing on me.

    I can say that this color really pops...not too bad for my first time doing anything like this huh? I just can't wait to see what it looks like in the sun. Now I just need to get the other three done and some skins for em.
