    None, a work in progress
    I am looking into either spraying my stock steelies graphite "gun metal" gray like yours, or black and was wondering what type of Duplicolor graphite you used (the toyota match, regular, fusion).

    Also, my truck is a Black Sand Pearl 2010 and am debating matching the grill with the rims and emblems, or blacking it all out...

    Any help, pictures would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Ya thats a good idea. Well I used sum rust-oleum gloss protective enamel super coverage and durability. Did a coat and sanded them and did one more coat. i wish i didnt use rust-oleum cuz i think im still going to have to bring along a can when im on the rode. you know what they say you get what you pay for. But for quick and easy mod that looks alot better then the stock rims it looks grate for now. just keep sum paint with you at all times and it will turn out ok haha. You can go the more expensive way and get them powder coated cheaper then new ones but not that cheap. Or shot around for some good paint that works better and let everyone know what you use and how well it did (08 Its really one of them ballin with a budget hah
    I will post pix of them as they get used to keep you posted(08
