Have been using photoshop for a week now so give me a little break. This took about 15 min to do. Thinking about moto metal 17x9. I would like to go 18 but i just got all new tires as i had an accident offroadin and they would only cover them for the original tires. :cautious: I also tinted the front window and smoked the tail lights.

Looks good/tough.  However, I am not a big fan of silver/chrome spots on the wheels.

And excellent job with the Photoshop  (y)
 
ya i kinda wish the silver tabs where black but they look really close to the color of my truck.

Is it too late to start a poll for this topic?
 
I like them and thats a pretty good job of photoshop. I would not have noticed if you didnt say something.

Very good photoshop job. The only thing I would reccomend doing is merging all of your layers and hitting auto levels. The rims are a little too bright to believe. Also, what did you do the Z71 symbol? You're a natural photoshopper. Keep it up, it can get really fun.

Explain this to me, I am very new at this so please explain. I did darken the wheels believe it or not just a little bit. The Z71 i fooled around with it a little bit and when i tried making it black it looked fake and flat. Also the spaces in between the wheels are black which i dont like because i couldnt find a clean large picture of these wheels but got them from a wheel shop catalog online. So no i didnt steal them from your rig Joeami.  :p

Hold Shift & Ctrl and press E. If you have more than one layer, they will become merged into one layer. Then, you can go to the top menu and click Image>Adjustments>Auto Levels. This should help the rims to become more ingrained with the whole picture. If that doesn't work, you can manually adjust the levels using Image>Adjustments>Levels. Please feel free to steal my rims (pictures that is....) and do whatever you like to them in photoshop. Once you get better at photoshop, you'll discover that you can completely modify the rims themselves and angle them so they look like they actually belong there... Keep working on it.

608 for a set of 4 wheels plus a 100 dollar discount at 4wheelparts. cheapest i have seen including ebay...
which 4 wheel parts store?

thats online... Are there better discounts at the stores? Id go to the one in laguna hills because that is the closest one.
The online prices are really good, but I would definitely say in Azusa, they were able to cut some dollars off here and there. When I broke my shock a couple weeks ago, the salesman fought really hard to make sure it was covered under warranty (the shop foreman is really grumpy and hates doing free work).
