    So I painted them Semi gloss black. I put about 5 layers on each. I kinda messed one up but cant tell. Also, I kinda like the look of the silver yota logo

    Question is, how long until they scrape up?

    nice... keep the Toyota logo silver for a little contrast...

    I did mine a while ago, and they are through one and a half NorthEast winters, and they are holding up great so far...

    Your truck does look much better btw!

    The important thing is you post pictures after you do whatever you decide to do.

    I did this in the past to an El Camino I used to own. They hold up well with the high-temp engine paint (you know applying the brakes get's the rims very hot!). Just take it easy when washing your wheels and only use sponges as needed.
    Looking good!
