New Tires plus Blacked Out Rims

Hey Guys,

So I figured I would post a few pics of the recent mods I did to my Compass!!

So I was going to put some nice deep tread tires on my stock 17" rims, but there were close to no options. So I dropped to a 16"x7" rim.

I picked up the rims off Craigslist or around $120 bucks and took about $30 to paint them Black!!

It took about 2 days of work with sanding, primer, paint and clear, but the outcome is awesome!

After waiting a day for them to dry, I went to Tire Kingdom and loaded them up with some 225/75r16 Sailun Terramax H/T tires. They look pretty good if you as me and they were a steal at around $90 a tire!!

I still have to get a white stick and color in the lettering since the tires were all blacked out. Any suggestions?

Ill post some more pics later after work...

Looks nice, IMO I wouldn't do the white letters. Once they are white and get dirty they will look beige and will have to redo them all the time. Plus all black with tire shine looks nice.

Looks good, I like the rims! Should there be centre caps?

You might need to add the lift kit now....
