Opinions on my wheels

I just purchased a set of Boyd Smoothie II's. I photoshop them on my truck to get your guy's opinions

Those wheels really look good on there. I love that body style and the wheels really compliment it!

Once I get my suspenion complete. I'm going to paint the truck pewter with the chassis powder coated black. I'm hoping the wheels will look good with the pewter.

Perfect IMO, they have an older 5 spoke look that fits the year but also modern at the same time. Now, shave the bumpers and drop the front an inch or two and get her painted.

What year is that truck? I was just at the local "Pick-n-pull" and found a 58 with a near perfect Chrome grille. I tried to get the thing off to sell it on ebay but it had a few bolts that I couldn't get to.

What is the value of something like that? The sides where it met the fender look awful vunerable to damage and that area was flawless on this grille.

Mines a 60', the grills on the 57' are different. IMO the 57' is a better looking grill. I do want to keep the body of the truck totally original. BUT, look underneath and you'll see a totally boxed chassis w/ high end suspension components. Pop the hood and you'll be looking at a twin turbo Windsor.
