New-ish rims and New Tires

So I got bored with the factory look of my 06 Sport 2wd and decided to spice things up. Firstly, while I had my winter wheel and tires on, I removed the clear coat from the rims and then began sanding them to smooth out the machined surface. Once that was completed I them began polishing the lip of the rims. Once that was achieved I then taped off the whole lip and laid down a couple coats of primer and paint and then removed the tape and cleared the whole rim.

Stock tire size was 235/75/15 Goodyear Wrangler RT/S, I upped the ante to 31x10.5x15 GT Radial Adventuro AT II.

What do y'all think?

Well the pics were taken from my cell phone, I can only have so much for expectations in photo quality.

I have roughly 20 hours into all 4 rims.

Looks real good!

If Princess Auto were a real girl, I'd ask her to marry me.
