    any tips, hints or pics (of the process)?

    Im installing 2" springs and spindles along with 3" leaves and either a 2 or 3" block on my 99 s10 in 9 days.

    I would really like to see pictures of what to expect before I start.

    Thanks guys.

    back in 1998 they were 2,500 for the wheels and tires, probally alot cheaper now

    Colorado Custom Paradox

    they are old now, need to sit down for a weekend and refinish and repolish them, Ive given them a through check and they have no cracks and are still round a true, im impressed considering how much abuse i put them through and the autoxing duty

    i could ask around, but id just go ahead with the 28buck ebay one, thats decent price, most of the chrome ones are just plastic you can sand it down to get rid of the chrome

    total price was like $275 or something, unpainted, you have to get a shop that knows how to prep and paint urethane or else it wont stick, paint was like $150.
