here is my truck with painted wheels. cost me $20 for the paint and $5 for some masking tape. Little bit of labor (taking off, tapeing, painting) each wheel and bingo!

I used the duplicolor satin black.
http://www.duplicolor.com/products/wheel.html

it gives youa demo on the web site. basic instructions. remove the wheel, sand it with a fine grit sand paper, clean it with a degreaser. Then you paint about 3-5 coats. same with the plastic caps. only set me back about $20 bones.

P-I-M-P paint on TRD Sport Rims

Check this guys out. I think it looks sweet. I want to do this more than any other i've seen.

How do you do this? Just mask off the rim and then get to painting?!?!? What type of paint, how long does it take? does it last long or do you have to re-apply?

the way i did it was...

wash the wheels real good with soap n water..
wet sand it with fine grit
then dry the wheels and clean it with a tack cloth
then spray with primer
then Spray the paint with a few coats

Wanted to add mine to the mix

Here are my rims, stock, just painted them with Duplicolor charcoal grey, then added a red lip to match the calipers and the truck. Did the lip with the caliper paint. I will add a clear coat this weekend. It looks kinda weak without better tires, oh well, after the lift i'll do tires...

Hind sight I should have left the lugs, they got all chipped when I was re-installing everything.

Amazing job! And how did you get an Orange Tacoma? Did you get it painted or was it some limited edition truck? I painted my wheels (page 1) and I'm lovin it. Great job with the lights and fog lights behind the grill mod. I have to do that next. You should think about getting Tail Light Guards. I put them on my truck recently and realized how much better the back of the truck looks. Look into it on ebay.
