New wheels, good trade?

So I've been wanting a drag set up since I'm putting the on3 kit on this winter and my 04 will be a strict drag/weekend cruiser.

Guy hit me up wanting to trade his weld pro stars w/tires for my 18" fr500's wheels and tires..

I was reluctant at first because I really wanted dark stars but that's a good 1400$

Well he sweetened the deal and thru 300$ on top of it so I pulled the trigger

But I'm wondering if I should powdercoat them a high gloss black instead of the chrome

Thanks Panther.


Got a new issue tho, I got the new wheels and stuff on but now my ABS light is on and so is my traction control light meaning it is off.. What would cause that?

Drove her to work today and now the ABS light is off and its back to normal.

But im wondering if that's because the battery was disconnected last night so it wiped the light.

Most likely because of a height difference between front and rear tires.
