    just regular black primer and semi-gloss paint from vatozone. anything that can be used on metal will work

    I'm a newb for Taco's, I was wondering did you paint your wheel bin fairings, or did they come glossed from stock? I got an 09 PreRunner, and those are flat black. I like the way your's has the gloss better. Along with the rims semi-gloss. Thanks

    Thanks for the info. Just did my rims last week and love it but having problems with the Krylon fusion paint on the plastic center caps chipping. I sanded then sprayed 4 coats on it for prep. anyone else have this problem? any suggestions? i dont really want to clear coat b/c touching up wouldnt look as good but maybe someone else can give me some ideas?

    unlifted u can use the stock jack + jack stands....the best thing for the lugs are a torque wrench and a deep socket. u'll need the wrench to get them back to 85 ft/lbs anyways

    When you say warm up, did you just bring them inside or did you put them in the oven to get them really warm? I like the idea of not having to sand down the rim first if I don't have to. Still tacomaless, but will be one of the first mods I do. Thanks

    Yea I guess that would be a tight fit lol. Did anyone else NOT use primer and still have the rims turn out nice?

    If you have a lifted truck, how do you take the tires off? Curious about that
