    I was thinking of Plasti Dip my crome clad rims and was wondering if anyone has done this. If so do you have pictures? I'm thinking of either black or gunmetal gray, my 2012 tacoma is black. Thoughts on which color would look better? I'm also going to do the badging..

    I was skeptical when I read your original post but they turned out great. Looks like an aftermarket wheel from a distance. Good job.

    It cost $40 bucks to do and I can take it off whenever I want. My plan is to get black rims when I get a lift but till then this will do.

    It's an absolute travesty to Plasti-Dip wheels on that new of a truck.
