Should i paint wheels black or buy black steelies??



This isn't my truck, just using as a reference. I have a white 2000 prerunner xtracab. I'm torn between painting my factory alloys black or buying some of those black procomp steelies from 4wheelparts. What do you guys think??

I have those same alloys and personally love the looks of them

Aside from the FJ Cruiser limited edition wheels, I think these are the best looking stock wheels out there - again personal preference of course.

Like the song says... paint'em black.

Courtesy of EVL Monkey's mad photoshop skills....

Here's what my truck would (kind of) look like with the stock alloys painted flat black.

why is your name "diesel" if you drive a tacoma? perhaps unleaded would be more appropriate.

In his gallery there's a picture of his shop.

In his shop there's a big diesel rig.
