    I might well be the only person who notices but I spent the past couple days sprucing up the wheels on our 2003, 2500.

    This is about what they all looked like before I started:

    Look new. Looks like you spent some time on those. Not just spraying over it.

    Thank you. I did spend some time with a wire brush for the small amount of rust, then a quick sanding with some wet 400. Couple coats of self etching primer, Three coats of paint and 2 coats of clear coat. They are not perfect, better spray job than I have ever done and they do look better.

    Looks great, I wish my truck came with steelies instead of the clad crap.
