    Curious if anyone rattle-canned your wheels and later regretted it. I'm thinking hard about spraying my 16" OR wheels black or graphite. Not interested in the cost/hassle of powdercoating, but I think the wheels would look much better witha coat of duplicator on them. Would any of you go back in time and not spray your wheels?

    If you don't like them then just paint them silver over the black....

    Yeah, but I'm not worried about not liking them - I'm worried about them peeling in a year when my truck is 2 years old. I'll probably just wait for spring and get some XD revolvers or something.

    I've had two friends (1 tacoma and 1 4runner) both paint there wheels almost 2 years ago, and they still look awesome! But they don't do any EXTREME off-road stuff, i.e. no rock crawling just a bunch of redneck stuff. I'm gonna buy black wheels for christmas with my lift, but thats just b/c I don't like the stock wheels. They should be fine if you do them right...
