I say yes. But make sure you rough em up, put atleast 2 coats on and clearcoat them. You will regret it if you dont. DeadBolts look really good.

Black rims look awesome on Tacomas but iam saving up for some black aluminum rims cause thier lighter then the stock steel ones. or if you don't have the time or can't find someone who does powder coating you can always buy some black steel rock crawler rims for $50 a piece.

I had my 17" Sport wheels sandblasted and powdercoated semi black last week. They were pretty ruff with pitting and shitty clearcoat. The local dealer wouldnt do squat for me so I didnt have much to lose. I had the steel winter wheels on so the timing worked out..
They turned out pretty mint. I bought Duplicolors Semi Gloss black to paint the caps but it turned out that I like the look of the aluminum center caps after all on the Silver truck. The factory clear coat on these came off pretty good at the sandblasters. Just needed some very minor touch up and then off to the coaters

- Sand Blasting $50.00 cash
- Powder Coating $120.00 cash
- Tires off $12.00 cash
- Tire on, Bal, Valves $60.00 cash

Total $ 342.00 all in

People usually paint/powdercoat to save a few bucks, I did know it be that much. I rather buy some black steel rock crawler rims. $50. Can't wait to see how they turned out leaving on the center caps silver that diffrent
