    Hello all,

    I picked up a new silver taco last week and think its great. I dumped the old chevy, (finally)!

    I was hosing off the salt today and noticed a bare rectangle in the right and left front wheelwells. the bare spots are both the same size and at 12 oclock in the well. i was wondering if this is normal? the rest of the area is black, I did not have the truck undercoated at the dealer, so they should not have had a hand in this.

    Thanks for any input!

    No, not a rub, this was intentionally not sprayed, the tires are stock, reg cab 4x4. I'll get a pic up tomorrow, but surely not a rub.

    thanks for the replies though!

    My 07 was the same. I cleaned them up really well and sprayed them with Duplicolor spray on bedliner.
