had them on my 05 for a little over a year before i sold it. depending on whether your getting chrome or machined or the gloss black you will have different issues.
Chrome- isnt very strong and will pit if you live in snowy areas where they use salt on the roads if you dont protect the rims.

machined/gloss black rims will hold up better and wont pit like the chrome ones. i had machined ones, the only issue i had was make sure you use a microfiber towel on the gloss black areas. I used an old rag cleaning and it kinda put little scratches in it but im picky so it really wasnt noticeable. but i waxed my gloss black part on my rims and helped to keep it clean and shiny

here are some pics of mine, 20x9 -12 offset with 305/55/r20 trail grapplers., i bought fuel hostages for my 2010 because the black is a matte black and when they are dirty, you dont notice it.

Glad your finally getting the wheels you want Greg! You've seen mine,they are about a year old now,they still looks brand new,just keep them clean. I'll be getting me some 35" Toyo MTs for mine in the next few months. I like them too much to drop all that money on 20x12s and new tires.

Hey guys thanks for the repsonse.. Yes I am glad im getting the rims and tires i want. Been a long time coming, got the engine work and bulletproofing/mods out of the way now moving on the exterior lol I ordered the machined/gloss black look 17x9 -12offset with 305/65/17 mickey thompson atz's.. Cant wait til there here.. My truck is almost looking like yours Diesel flash! Trying to find a grille like yours though and am not having any luck.. Any suggestions? Prob. going to do an 05+ conversion and get a harley grille if i cant get anything like what you have.

sweet thanks justin for the info... dont know much about plastidipping.. Where do you take it to get it done? do you do it yourself? Also the billet insert- is it the insert that goes over the factory insert or do you cut the factory insert out and place the billett in place? thanks justin.

The stuff is called plasti dip I believe. It comes in spray cans, got mine at Lowes. It's just a rubberized coating. There a few threads on here about it and lots of videos on YouTube. The billet insert I got bolts over the top of the factory grille. I think the cutout billet insert looks better. I'll get a pic posted up of my stack.
