    I have my Ralley's off the truck and a temporary set of white wagon spokes on there now. Would like to paint them before I put them and some new tires on the truck ( gathering lift parts now ). Is the silverish color on 4wd Ralley's the same Argent color as on Corvette rims? Or should I paint them one of my body colors? My truck is tan top/white bottom.
    Bored Today at work,

    Very few wheels look good body color IMO, and if they are body color, they need splashes of silver or chrome to set the wheels off. That's my opinion only of course, but I've noticed that on most vehicles...silver or chrome just sets off the wheels for some reason.

    Anyways, it shoud be the same Argent. Doubt there are different shades, and argent should be the one.

    Thanks! Should be able to finish (like we ever finish) my truck off soon. I'll post a pic after the lift and tire/rims.

    Well, even if he painted the rallyes a body color, the caps and trim rings would still be chrome....should look great!
