Re: NEW WHEELS

What a difference! I think the rims and tire combo look great.
Love the stripes on the van, they look just like the ones that were on mine.

Re: NEW WHEELS

That's funny you commented on these... I actually got the black wheel/polished lip idea from your pics as you were outfitting your rig. I thought they looked sweet with the stripes.

How did you get the stripes off? I don't think I'll mess with that now but it will need paint at some point in a few years and it may be easier to get rid of them vs having them paint new ones.

Where are your most recent pics? I couldn't find the post stripe pics on your profile.

Actually, come to think of it, maybe you mentioned you were kicking around the idea of taking them off but were going to hold off.

I think your profile pic must be from that trip and the road grime covered them up.

Re: NEW WHEELS

Ya my profile pic shows my SMB filthy on the Dempster Hwy, the stripes really grew on me and really liked the look. The stripes stayed on till the day i had to let it go. Being painted on, there's really no easy way to remove them. Your van looks fantastic, i'd leave em.
