Which OEM Wheels Look Better?

I'm wanting to gain a collective opinion on swapping my OEM wheels for another set of OEM wheels. Let the opinions fly!

I am choosing not to go with a set of after market wheels due to the fact that "new" used OEM's are so much easier on the wallet, especially if they fit my existing tires with ample remaining tread. From my research I can get a new set of OEM's for around $300.00 including shipping. I could hopefully sell my 1st Gen OEM's for half that, and recoup some of my cost.

What I Have Currently


I have attached the two options that I am considering for my 2003 DC. I am also very open to suggestions, and input from others that have battled this decision before, and even problems to be aware of or things to consider.

99-02 4Runner Limited Wheels


2nd Gen Stock Alloy

out of those, I like the limited wheels. I have the 1st gen sr5 alloys which I don't particularly like (although I like them better than the TRD ones like you have) but I am about to paint them satin black, which I find to look killer:

I have considered painting mine black, but I was afraid that with my lack of skills it would just be like tying a ribbon around a turd and calling it art. If anyone has any pics of this setup I would love to check them out to see first hand how they look on the truck.

I haven't seen anyone paint the TRD alloys black. I honestly don't think it would look great, but I might be wrong.

as far as painting is concerned, just take your time with the prep work and it will all turn out ok.

clean the wheels, sand with 320 grit, clean the wheels, 1-2 coats of self etching primer, 2-3 coats of rustoleum black enamel in whatever finish you want.

I like the 99-02 Limited edition, but I would paint them black as I own some black rims and much prefer black rims over chrome rims anyday. Just my opnion
