    So I have the dreaded corrosion known for 2005-06 Sport Wheels. I went to the dealer to discuss it with them as it is clearly a known problem with these years. They start out by saying I must have put some kind of cleaning solution on them to cause this. Then we have never heard of this problem before. Then we will speak to the local Toyota rep. When I was leaving another service advisor mentioned that someone was in the week before with the same problem. I never heard back from them, they must still be checking with the Toyota rep. Called them back and got a flat no we don't cover corrosion although Toyota Corporate says differently. Anyway, I did not want to drive around anymore and decided to fix it myself. I used a grinder and graduating finer sandpaper on my cordless drill and removed all of the chipping paint and corrosion. Then taped them up which was the longest part of the job. Three coats of flat black and on to the next wheel. Attached are the results. Keep in mind I am by no means a professional painter. This was the cheapest solution until I get new wheels.

    That looks really damn good. If I didn't need a different offset, I would have done that. Only thing I might try is a gloss black to see how that looks.

    Your right, the corrosion started right on the edge where the back of the wheel meets the visual edge. I made sure to get the edge clean but it is not a permanent fix but it should last a while.

    Looks good. My 2007 TRD OR has similar issues. I hit the wheels with a power washer and started blowing paint off of them. The salted roads up here don't help matters any.
