Nice work!
Black lugs man...if you wanna screw around with red, maybe the center cap...or the lettering in the center cap.

Funny thing about black lugs.. I bought some.. 34$, don't fit..

I'll be getting black lugs next for the wheels! I don't think I could get the "Jeep" part in the center red without ****ing it up somehow hehe.. Did my Jeep emblem on hood red though

Hahhahah...DON'T DO IT DUDE! Go black and never look back...hahahahaha.

If you were to spray your center caps red and let it dry, then try dabbing on the black on the rest of the cap, avoiding the letters. I've had pretty good luck with some Griot's garage touch up brushes though.

rims and calipers turned out nice! i think in the spring im going to repaint my calipers red instead of silver..
rims look really good, no fish eyes like mine(i should have primed them but didnt, and i put too heavy of a coat on also) do you plan to leave them primered or are you going to paint them glossy?

Thanks! Nah I like the primered look over the glossy one, I did mess up on my driver side wheel and it's too black in the center, and missed some spots so I gotta re-do that tomorrow.

The red really stands out, these calipers are pretty big ones :-P

Hmm.. I think I'm going to try that.. but the question is.. white Jeep logo with red background.. or red Jeep logo? :-)

I'll be on the hunt for the black lugnuts! :thumbsup:

Red Jeep logo definitely. I did that with my Acura wheels and loved the look.

I'm running black lug nuts. I have the McGard 65530BK "Installation Kit". It comes with 16 spline drive lug nuts & key, and 4 wheel locks & key. Black lugs plus extra security FTW
