    Magnetic Gray Rims look good on a Magnetic Gray 2011 TRD Sport DC SB?

    I am usually not a fan of colored rims but perhaps dark gray would look OK. I may have to wip out the ol' photoshop...

    PS. would the spraypaint that is used for the bumper paint work on stock rims?

    Post #16 is my truck


    HaHA. You just wanted to show off your unobtainium TRD Anthracite wheels. Your truck looks awesome with those wheels on it. But you sir are a jackass for reminding me that I can't find those wheels anywhere. :D

    I did something a little different. Didn't want to buy new rims, didn't want to deal with touching up paint on the entire rim, but I wanted to address the "blah" of the stock rims. So I just painted the center caps around the Toyota emblem with the magnetic grey touchup paint (pick up for $9 at dealer). I was actually very surprised how well it came out, and how well it accented the truck.

    That's cool... any further shots to see the whole look? It's a good idea

    I got the sport rims too and debating keeping them for new tires, I want the anthracite too dammit! But don't like anything aftermarket enough for the $$, so painting was my next option too (mag owner)

    IM worried of the paint chipping/scratching off when offroad (noticed few scratches on my rims already from this) so I don't wanna look all ghetto later with rims that look scratched/painted bad lol. But the inside is a good medium. Powdercoating? Hm...
