Those are some nice rims Jim did up for you as well and look right at home in the tires.

What did you use for painting those tires? They look Very good to me, just like rubber. I have few builds where I have to paint tires, and your painting looks just right.
Niko, I primered them with Rust-oleum filler primer then hit them with model masters matte black.

In person the tires are real nice, The tread does not look goofy like some of the narrowed tires I have seen.
Joe did a nice job of slicing and splicing so the cut is in the tire tread's grooves. It's a bit of a bummer that Monogram didn't see fit to make those Eagle ST tires as 15" tires, instead of 14".
