Re: White Wheels on Black New Edge :)

ok boys n girls... here are the wheels and tires... i pick them up on saturday after work... not bad for 275 cash

03-04 silver cobra wheels 17x9 and 17x10.5 rears.

the best part is... i work for a tire shop and get a fantastic deal on tires. so even with them being shot... it will be less than 600 bones for me to be on the road and rollin purdy

Re: White Wheels on Black New Edge :)

Wheels and Tires mounted up for the test fitting... i was wrong.. according to our measuring tool.. these are 9.5 and 11's?



used some brake cleaner and unpainted the rear bumper inserts, re applied the brushed aluminum letters, and stripped the pony on the front grill back to polished

might just rock these like this for a while too many compliments to paint them this soon

Re: White Wheels on Black New Edge :)

17x9 - 17x11 03-04 Cobra's

They have this crappy untreated finish that the previous owner just like grime build up on without doing any treatment whatsoever, so I get the lovely task of doing whatever I want with them.

Starting today The throw in the air was with either going bronze again, because numerous people loved it, but the winning color combo goes to Ultra White with Black Pinstriping.

Without further delay...

Day 1:









I always recommend taking the tires off the wheels if you can for simple ease, but if you cant a deck of cards in between the tread and the rim works perfect.



Also, if your doing this, dont just paint the face of a wheel, take the time and clean the inside as well, especially with a light color choice, makes a HUGE difference.

I always do one wheel at a time so that way I dont rush into any mistakes to get the oooo finished look so quickly. Rim#1 is currently baking outside and will for the next few hours until it comes time for sanding the first layer so I can pinstripe, then will come about 4 coats of clear.

More to come soon
