    Hello all! Haven't posted much, but I visit this forum quite often. I figure I can ask some of you and maybe even post some pictures. I have some money to spend on rims. Im in love with the Anthracite SE FJ wheels. My dilemma is if I should buy the Black or Gunmetal? Reason I ask cause I have a '12 DCLB Silver Streak color truck. I love the gunmetal color, but for the sake of the color, maybe black would look better. I haven't really seen these rims on a Silver Tacoma. If you have them, can you please post them. Or suggest which color would be best.

    Thanks in advance!

    Well, considering the Trail Team version is black...I would go with something different. Try a dark gun metal gray. If you don't like it....paint em again!

    I went black for almost 5 years and I thought it looked great. However, the gunmetal wheels are pretty nice as well. In the end when they get dirty, they look the same.

    Nice truck man! Yea you're right, when they get dirty they'll be black. But I guess Im more concern for the matching aspect. I dont know if the gunmetal will be over kill with the silver.

    I don't think either color - gunmetal or black - would look bad on your silver Tacoma, but maybe a dark gunmetal such as graphite gunmetal would be a good in-between color that will satisfy your desire to have both a gunmetal wheel and a black wheel.
