IMO painted OE wheels looks cheap. But if you're thinking about doing it you can see lots of examples in the plasti-dip mega thread.

Lots of people have painted or powder-coated their stock wheels and posted here. Personally, powder-coating is the best option. We need to know your current wheels style.

For a daily driver I would agree powder coat is the best option but for trail use, I'd lean toward plain old rattle cans. They're much easier to touch up than powder coat. Just my $0.02.

Somebody did a set in dark gray/gun metal/anthracite to match the FJ TRD center caps and it looked great. I have looked for the thread but can't find it. I was going to do it too, but went a different direction. I have the gray center caps still, which I will sell at a good price.

Edit: Not exactly the wheels I was looking for, but these look great: Great Wheels

Dark gray looks great on white. So does black though.

Nice turck. Like that look.
Price should be $60-$100 a rim depending on the shop. Was going to get mine done by a buddie, dont like the look of the stock rims tho, sport ones look better
