Re: getting started
Aside from the aesthetics, which I love, to me they seem like a better idea than fully painted/powder coated rims. It's always the edges of the rims that get beat up from rocks and tire installation tools, and this way you don't have to worry as much about the paint/powder coat getting chipped. That and even though I have all black rims on my SMB, I think the all black rim has been done to death.
I actually tried to find black center/silver edge rims for my Bronco a number of years back but couldn't find any that would fit.
