Kind of New.

Just thought I'd say hi, and throw some pics of my ride in here. That white spot is a lightning strike. Didn't even damage the paint, just changed the molecular structure of it.

Oh I know they are summer tires. But sometimes you get caught.

Re: Kind of New.

Great looking SRT I love those wheels! Sounds like you need some winter tires though lol.

Nice lightning strike, I've never seen that happen before. Is is still smooth like normal paint?

Re: Kind of New.

Nope, the rig wasn't on, so no damage. On the paint, you can't feel anything. It's no different than normal.
