    painted the wheels the other night. no sanding at all or prep work. just sprayed them on. I personally think it looks much better and for 5 bucks. its worth it.

    Thanks. I might be picking up a set of those wheels to have powdercoated black and I wondered what they would look like done. I also have the dark red DoubleCab but is lifted with everything blacked-out.

    Trying something different. I only painted the center caps flat black. I put 3 coats of DUPLICOLOR primer and 3 coats of DUPLICOLOR flat black.

    looks pretty good, way better than before... but I hate those style rims with a passion, they are just ugly. I sold my set for $40.. would have taken $10 for them. I'd look out on craigslist for some better tacoma rims

    I took the caps the replaced the rusty old lugs with some black ones. Maybe I'll buy some new wheels in the future.
