I am painting my rims today and wondering which one I should go with. I was leaning more towards semi gloss since it's in between the others.

Ya I was thinking satin to. Are the steps the same as doing the steel rims and the sport rims? http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/whe...rims-easy.html

This is how I'm going to do it. Just a light sand to scuff it up and then clean them and just spray them or should I use a primer

Kind of a dumb question but where is the best place to put the jack and the jack stands?

Not a dumb question, it's important to do it right. Check your manual for jacking locations.

So after looking at the manual the front looks like on the frame? And the back on the axle?

Ok one last quick question. Do I do one side at a time or is it ok to jack the front up put a jack stand, jack the back put a jack stand and then do the same to the other side?

I've had my entire truck on 4 jackstands before , as long as they're on level ground and the stands are at steady locations ,e.g. frame, rear axle.
