To those who have painted their rims black

I've got the stock TRD rims on my 08 Toyota Tacoma double cab TRD/SR5. Rather than pay 700$ for some black rims, I figure I would just paint mine, plus I like the look of them already. So what steps did you take to paint your rims black? Thanks

re-do in a month when you scratch them

You can shove old playing cards in the bead for a quick way to mask them off.

Awesome trick with the playing cards, saves a lot of time!

you can get them powder coated it would be more durable than spray paint.

I have an actual paint sprayer with air compressor, would something like rustoleum work in a flat black after sanding and priming?

And pay more to have them done and re-done when you ding them.

I paid 20 bucks for paint and I'm still using the same can for occasional touch ups.

The simple steps above were good. There are several threads about painting-Just gotta make sure you prep it right to keep it on the rim.
