    It looks like the chances of finding a set of the limited edition wheels is not that great. I'm still considering just picking up a set of silver ones and having them powder coated but I'm wondering if there are any other options.

    I would like to stick with either 16 or 17", and the gunmetal style Anthracite color. Has anyone ever seen any aftermarket wheels that resemble this style and color?

    All dealers in Canada list as obsolete :mad:

    Will try some US dealers near the border on Monday to see what they have! At this point i'm looking at about $3-400 for wheels, then powdercoating costs so even a marked up dealer set is worth it. I did find the Anthracite centre caps for $8 a piece!

    One more question, does this style of wheel need different lug nuts from my regulal TRD offroad wheels?

    Do you have a link for the $8 center cap? For that price, it may be worth having a spare..

    Good luck locating the wheels!

    BUMP! I like these wheels too but too much $$$ and hard to find.

    1sttoyotaparts.com has the silver ones for $130 each. Then you can paint them. Duplicolor makes a good gunmetal wheel paint that looks just like it.

    Nothing aftermarket that I have seen matches. As other have said, just get the silver ones and have them powder coated or painted.
