    My stock wheel where starting to peel and the aluminum was corroding like most of stock 17 inch do. I was playing with photoshop and decided to go with this last design. I sand blasted both sides, primed them with etching primer, painted both sides black, taped all the black, painted the silver than cleared it all. I also sand blasted my rear bumper and painted it black. After 4 long days of work this is what I ended with. O yea also a pic of my shinny skid plate that I polished this winter. Love this site for all the info and all the great rides.

    Those wheels look amazing, can't even tell that they're stock wheels at all.

    Airplane paint stripper, sanding with 400 grit then 1500 grit ant buffing with a polishing wheel on a drill using mothers polish compound. It take a lot of hours and patience.

    I really like it....your effort in the paint job paid off.

    Up close it may not be perfect but I always feel that the "look" is best realized from a distance!

    I think they will not last as long if you run then in the winter.

    I refinished the same rims (off a 03 4runner) ..just blacked them out ...instead off buying steel rims for my winter tires....these are on my tundra

    Yours look way better...good job!

    x2, I didn't realize they were the stock TRD Sport rims til I got to the close-up. Interesting choice, I think it looks good!
