They're not easy, but they're not difficult. You just have to be patient, because it takes a long time. They sound good, I just wired it into my rear door speakers, so they're not super loud. I would need to invest in another amp for that. the most difficult part is getting the right size wood/plastic for the speakers to mount onto.

I love them. they're a rougher than my old wheels, but I kind of like the way they feel.

Yeah anytime you go with smaller rubber you're going to get a rougher ride. You'll get uwsed to it after a little while.

I tinted the outside, using VHT Nightshades from O'Reily autoparts. I later painted the chrome black to make it even darker.

The chrome on the wheels never grew on me, so I picked up some Plasti-dip at Lowes and went to work. I like the finished product a lot better. Sorry about the crappy iPhone picture.

well, the chrome was a plastic insert that was held in by screws, so i took out all the inserts and painted them. it's holding up fine, and was really easy, so i guess it would work on your friend's wheels.

Yeah, and thanks. I do have a question to anyone that has a TRD CAI, one of my clips on the bottom of the filter thing fell off, know where I could get a replacement?

It sounds good. I didn't like the sound of the headers at first. It reminded me of the sound of a diesel volkswagon car. But I really like it now with the exhaust.
The Weapon-R S-pipe should be here in about a week, and i'm hoping that should make it sound even better. I ordered it all at the same time, but they sent me the S-pipe that went with their header and not with the stock header, so it wouldn't fit. :(

I don't, the roads aren't very flat here, so I'll probably keep it stock height.

Nice man that's cool.

I'm more than likely staying stock height too. Haven't studied to roads in Oklahoma that closely yet, but around here I wouldn't want to lower it.
