    Default Should I ???

    I found these aluminum EAGLE rims that are the same rims that I have on my truck. They are 15X6 rims on the trailer where my truck is 15X8. They are on sale ($30 off) with a $50 rebate. Should I get them? The rim & tire in the picture is a display model which is a 235/75/16. I'd get the 205/70/15 tires with a 15" rim.




    Last weekend I painted the rims blue to match the flames on my truck








    This weekend I rewired the exterior lights and have all the lights working again. The side rear marker lights haven't worked since the 1980's.

    Yes. It turns the trailer into an extension of the truck, like they belong together. I would turn the ww's in since you don't have ww's on your truck though. Just my .02.

    I plan on white walls in. With my current blue rims and the chrome center cap white walls out wouldn't look bad. But I have been wanting matching rims since the day I painted the trailer black in my driveway.

    Too bad payday isn't until next week because I think I want them. Then again it gives me a week to talk myself either into them or out of them. LOL

    The blue wheels would look great with ww's for sure, they just don't give the same vibe that your truck does. There is just something about a nice car/truck that has a matching trailer. You've already done the hard work with the matching paint, why not finish it off?

    I like the way you worded that. That sounds like a great way to justify it to the wife

    Nope I have a good wife. Since the trailer was her Great Grandmother's and her Great Grandmother walked on water I can upgrade the trailer as long as we have the money. We just paid off a credit card so I'm getting the rims with new trailer tires.
