    I've got a set of 4 17" TRD Sport alloy wheels that I am considering having sandblasted. I'll be using one of the rims as a full sized spare, but can get the other 3 sandblasted as well. Would there be anyone interested in purchasing individual wheels that are ready for paint/plasti-dip/powdercoat? Probably would ask for $65 each, plus shipping.

    Why get them blasted? Someone might want one in factory finish. NO ONE will want one without a finish. All 4 yes, three, NO WAY.

    I don't know about all that. I bought a wheel with a finish and had to get strip it off myself to paint it. Getting a pre-blasted rim woulda sped up the process.

    Nothing like a non factory finish wheel to fix the damaged one you would be being a single wheel for. Should match the other three real good after you rattle can or take a stab at matching powder coat colors.

    I needed a 5th rim for a spare. And the rattle can matched perfectly as the rest of my rims are rattle canned black too.

    Yeah the 4 extra wheels I have already need to be media blasted. 1 of the 4 will be painted by me so I'll have a set of 5 painted alloys. So since I'm going to the media blaster anyways, I was considering just blasting the other 3, figuring there may be other people on TW that are looking for a 5th wheel that they could paint/powdercoat/plastidip to match their other 4 wheels. But, if there is no market or interest in them, I'll save the time and money and try to unload them as-is.
    Thanks for the feedback.
