Talking New Black Rims on my JIMMY.. check it

alright guys... heres my 99 Jimmy 2wd
first i wanna say I LOVE THE WAY IT TURNED OUT!
There Cragar Soft 8's -15x7 4.25 bs and stainless steel center hubs from summracing

gotta say this

Pros: everything cosmetic wise is perfect.. jst like how i pictured it plus more! lol

Cons: The rims had little little dings around the lip, noticed when taking it out of the box. Due to how these rims were package, there jst put into the cardboard box from summit not really a cushion in between- Which they WILL be getting an email from me. dont get why the package them like this

we had to trim the calipers because it rubbed pretty bad up front.

the center hole for the rims that goes around the circle hub thing that sticks out from the jimmy (dont know the name) was about a hair wider... meaning my rims are held in there by studs/lug nuts; puts load on the studs... was suggested that i got get a center ring kit that'll fill the small gap.. hopefully u guys understand lol

but other then all that, these rims are amazing, and gave my Jimmy what its been striving for.. love it
srry for cell phone pix i was crazy busy for a camera
Lemme know what u guys think

You should get some wheel spacers for the rear, I think it would make it look better than it already is. I like how the black wheels and tires contrasts with your white truck.

Pictures came out nice for being taken with a cell phone. Those wheels def made a huge difference. Nice job.

Very nice indeed. I like the cragars on your truck.
I agree with the wheel spacers though, it would look better if they were stuck out a bit more.

Awesome truck! And I agree on wheel spacers, i love trucks with those rims and how they stick out. The prev. owners of my blaz have a chevy truck with wheels like that and spacers and it just looks so awesome.
