      My friends have Plastidip on their pegs. It's a flat black and peels off if you don't like it.

      yes , even if you cut it back it'll still bug you...I don't know why it just will...so don't rush...I think I'll cut my off and just put a 3.5" round SS tip there.

      Wow, it's the only time I'll ever agree with Ti-R. Those wheels look bad, really bad. I'm sorry if you bought them thinking otherwise, get pegs immediately.

      Flat black looks better, but I may be biased(I am biased, I have them).
      Yeah She's Dirty...

      The thing about matte black is that its detail doesn't get lost, it doesn't disappear in photos, and IMO it has more class.

      But Ti-R, I know you wouldn't know this because you probably LIKE getting screwed in the ass from the dealer for tire changes, but our cars don't have lug nuts.

      First of all, you're no one to talk. Nobody on this forum actually likes you, whereas I talk to many fellow SS members. You are on my ignore list, because you're an idiot. When someone is on your ignore list, you can "View Post", to see what kind of retarded response you wrote. "Another idiot douche from Vermont living with mommy and daddy washing cars at a crappy land rover dealership" You've got to be joking. First of all, we're one of the nicer, and more generous states as far as hospitality. Secondly, my parents are divorced, as are about 53% of marriages across the states the last time I checked. Third, I don't live with either of my parents, just because you live with your computer and right hand, doesn't mean the rest of us do. Fourth, I am a product and on site photographer for a Land Rover parts, and fleet sale broker, not even close to a dealership and we don't sell cars. So again, I must assure you that you are the lowest form of loser there is, and may God have mercy on your sole(oh wait, the Westboro Baptist Church says he already hates you).

      I don't know why, but I feel sort of bad for him... I don't think he means to be an ass all the time, but he can't help it. I think he really needs to start thinking about why he tries to aggravate people.

      Sorry to muck up your thread. I definitely prefer flat black on electric silver. Look into the Plastidip, it looks great and is protective as well.
