    Hey guys!

    I found a set of 18" Tacoma rims on craigslist in my area and Im wondering
    if anyone could explain the process for painting them black. I want my truck to be all White and Black. Sanding? Priming? Coats? Clear Coat after...What type of black paint/spray should I use...Anything would be awesome!!

    Thanks
