    all one color.

    personally I like them.

    for me I got them for function instead of form. I plan on beating my steelies and keeping my TRD Sport wheels nice and clean.

    Plasti derp holds up really well and goes on easy without over spray spots.....it's a matte finisher though. Have 5-10 coats on my bumper and front grill/valance and haven't touched it up yet in a year!
