    Because my TRD Sport wheels were starting to look like crap from all of the scratches and blistering I decided to paint them.

    Did you use Flat or Gloss? I cant decide which would look better on a superwhite.

    It took me a long time. The paint on the wheels was so bubbly it took a long time to sand them down. Also because I only have two jack stands i could only do two at a time. I’m still not sure if I like them, but I didn’t like them before. When I get new tires I’m going to find a set of 16's I like because 285 BFG ATs are about $50 cheaper for 16' wheels.

    I like the black rims only if the tires are dressed. When the tyre is faded the combo looks terrible IMO.
