    here is my truck with painted wheels. cost me $20 for the paint and $5 for some masking tape. Little bit of labor (taking off, tapeing, painting) each wheel and bingo!

    I used the duplicolor satin black.
    http://www.duplicolor.com/products/wheel.html

    it gives youa demo on the web site. basic instructions. remove the wheel, sand it with a fine grit sand paper, clean it with a degreaser. Then you paint about 3-5 coats. same with the plastic caps. only set me back about $20 bones.

    the way i did it was...

    wash the wheels real good with soap n water..
    wet sand it with fine grit
    then dry the wheels and clean it with a tack cloth
    then spray with primer
    then Spray the paint with a few coats

    Thanks man, I was just digging the old school look.
    I think it would look pretty unique and sweet with that bronze look

    Here are my rims, stock, just painted them with Duplicolor charcoal grey, then added a red lip to match the calipers and the truck. Did the lip with the caliper paint. I will add a clear coat this weekend. It looks kinda weak without better tires, oh well, after the lift i'll do tires...

    Hind sight I should have left the lugs, they got all chipped when I was re-installing everything.

    Amazing job! And how did you get an Orange Tacoma? Did you get it painted or was it some limited edition truck? I painted my wheels (page 1) and I'm lovin it. Great job with the lights and fog lights behind the grill mod. I have to do that next. You should think about getting Tail Light Guards. I put them on my truck recently and realized how much better the back of the truck looks. Look into it on ebay.
