Thanks mate, my fiend wants to paint my rims black which i will go with eventually lol, and as for new tires ill use the ones i just bought for a bit (still brand new lol) then look at getting a second set of 15" rims and put MT tires on them for sure

next for me is the front shocks and springs, which should lift the car a little in the front end
MT wow you will go full hardcore there. do you really need them ? they will be loud too. unless you get some used ones for cheap. to paint your rims in black is really simple man. just do it

Those rims are awesome! If I wasn't taking my car down the rat route, I'd seriously consider that colour.

Lmfao
It is real nice but wouldn’t last a week without getting scratched in the bush,
that’s why I figure black is cheap and easy and also won’t “highlight” me lol
Although I’m not sure what type of paint I should use be it matte black or gloss or whatever else there is lol
Also contemplating repainting all the external lower plastics on
The doors, the side skirts & rear bumper all black to match the wheels and freshen it up a bit
But rims first
And still have to install Bull bar
