    Had my stock TRD off road wheels anthracite. I had them plasti dipped for a few months. Can't say anything bad really it held up just fine, but I really wanted this color instead. They aren't on the truck yet still at shop but what do u guys think? Will it look good on an MGM taco? Should have it back together this evening but here's a pic of the wheelImageUploadedByTapatalk1367588275.987101.jpg

    Next time, take an extra 2 minutes and mask off the tire... :smack:

    Color looks nice though.

    Yea. If you took them to a shop to have done and they didn't mask off your tire I'd be pissed. I wouldn't let that be done at my place. But the wheels look good. I've been planning on doing this to mine at some point.

    And my brother did it at the paint shop he works at. Believe the paint was what Toyota uses not sure though I'm pretty paint illiterate. It was 1A1 was the paint code that's All I know

    check out treadwrite.com

    I have not hear/read one negative review about them. I had a set of their tires on my truck and loved them!

    $530 for a pair of 265-75-16's BFG tread patterns shipped to my door

    Yes they were clear coated but I'm not sure how many coats.
    I have been looking at tread wright very hard especially their new bead to bead Claws those things look sick. I'm sure treadwright will get my business pretty soon
