found me some Eagles!! 18x8 with a +38 offset sadly the guy sandblasted them so i doubt im gonna put the effort in to shine them back up again, probably going to go a gunmetal color

That's not all bad, it's almost like starting with brand new rims! Nice pickup!

ya i guess, just need to decide what i want to do with them! ive been thinking about polishing the front of the spokes and the tiny lip then painting the rest gunmetal or black or just spraying the whole thing a solid color

spent a few mins with some 400 grit on the 2 bottom spokes to see how they would clean up


anyone else have any thoughts?

They look too good polished to have them any other color in my opinion. Just plasti-dip different colors until you find which one you like best.

Black car + bronze wheels = win.

What's the offset on those? Get rid of the junky Goodyears on there.

plastidip might be a option but id probably drive to the states to grab some as its $20/can here in Canada

offset is +38 and those tires have to come off, i really dont think a 245/45/18 will clear with the drop, and bronze could look good but i was planning on painting engine, trans, calipers and a few other things a gunmetal and black combination.... decisions

Order that **** online. I think bronze would look good in a mesh style wheel, but not in a spoke. Maybe a dark bronze, definitely not bright colored IMO

ive tried but you cant ship chemicals across the border and Canadian vendors online charge $15 i think

a buddy is going down in a few weeks to grab some stuff and i believe Lowes sells it for $5/can so might toss him some cash to bring me some back

Did you buy those from a GP owner?

Yeah, 245/45 R18 is what GPs use.

Yeah, you need a 245/40-18.

I think those would look great in bronze or gold. Would look similar to volks and other mag style wheels in those colors, and those colors go great and black or white cars.

245/40s fit? i was gonna go with some 235/40/18s again but if 245/40/18 should clear ill probably get some of those

sold my clear coat peeling hood the other day and i needed to test fit these rims to get an idea of what it will look like and i love it! still cant decide on what i want to do for color/polish though



so glad that peeling hood is gone! now if only i could sell my konig rims

245/40s with Canucks, you're not going to have much clearance if any near the base of the strut, not to mention you might rub at full lock

Are those eagles painted or powdercoated?


I agree with Sam, can't beat polished on black/dark color.
