    I have bfg all terrains on my black tacoma and have no chrome except for my door handles. Was thinking i wanted to black the tires all out, anyone done this? Know a good easy way to do it? Was thinking some flat black spray paint or maybe plasti dip so i can take it off easy? Probably going to try plasti dipping tomorrow to see how it looks and take it off if bad.

    A buddy of mine did his rims with some flat black and a few shots of clear coat. He just roughed up the surface a little and sprayed them. Turned out really good

    Do they make plasti-dip in white? If so, maybe I could cover up all of the streaks in my undies.

    Definitely plasti dip the letters. Be sure and tape REALLY well. And when you peel, use a toothpick to make the edges cleaner. Also, make sure to NEVER rub your sidewalls on anything that may compromise the finish of the plasti-dip...that would just make it look bad. Please post pics when your done!
