    Am thinking of painting my center caps black.. Wondering if I should go all black, or get fancy and tape off the Toyota symbol. Painting my rims is not an option right now.. 17" Sport Rims.

    I think it'll look better if you painted the rims as well. Might look odd just having the center caps painted. I can't vote because thats not an option.

    I just did the center caps the other day. I dont have pics but it does look ok. I just really wanted to see how the color was going to look(black) for the rims when I do them but didnt have the 4 or 5 hours to devote to gettin all done at once, for now its pretty cool but you would have to be crazy to tape that toyota emblem off IMO. I had the tires rebalanced from a shop that does the rear weights so when I do paint the whole rim I wont have that silver weight shinning like I see a lot of them do. Just a little add on that I think will make a diff when I black them out

    I just painted the whole center cap, then did the toyota symbol by hand.
    trying to tape it off became to much of a hassle.
