Right now I'd say the flat red goes with it best.

My opinion is gloss black. But then I would white wall the tires.

GJCAT is starting off with a positive reputation.
Flat red for now change them when its bright red. On the other hand my 56 is bright red and I painted my wheels and the grill a Harley steel gray metallic. I also have trim rings and the stainless hub caps. It looks fine and loots of people comment me on the color scheme.

So i went with flat red. Its the same color I painted the firewall, and was originally gonna do the whole truck in. This really adds to the look of the truck!

Well, I like it. But I was one of the guys recommending it, so I’d better like it! It does look good on that truck as you have it now. Those wheels and tires will last a long time, I expect.

wheels are steel solids from coker. I think they are the same thing most of the wheel places are selling as solid wheels. Rears are 15x10 with a 5inch back space and fronts are 15x7 with a 4.25 inch back space. rear tires are BF goodrich silvertown radials in 285 70 15. They have the same tread pattern as radial T/As, but in much bigger sizes. Fronts are Radial T/As in 215 70 15
