    I am in the market for black wheels. I am really diggin' the American Racing ATX Thug Teflon Wheels. Do you think it would be worth the money to buy these of get my factory wheels powder coated? I see some trucks on here with black stock wheels. Does the dealership powder coat them for you as an option when you buy your truck? What is a ballpark price to have my stock wheels powdercoated? If anyone has painted or powder coated the 16" alloy stock wheels that come on an 07 Taco please share photos. thanks.

    Stick on hood scoop from Autozone.
    I think powdercoating them would look awesome. It's one of my future mods.

    I've been debating having my steelies powdercoated. Will cost $50.00 per wheel with the sandblasting. I really like the way those look! Are you running without centercaps?

    Actually I am running center caps off my old 95 Taco. After dismounting my steelies for powder coating, I noticed that the center hub hole seemed about the same size as my 95 Taco centers caps which I still have and sure enough they fit perfectly. My wife went to Toyota dealer and found out that the center caps are the same part# as stock FJ's so you can order them. The old caps look better than the ones there using now (not as big). I found a set on TW about two weeks ago and you can find them on ebay.

    I painted mine for a cost of about $30. I am impressed with how nice they turned out.

    Rtrn2taco- yours look great too. Either way I think you will be happy. Im totally satisfied with mine. I would have bought new wheels but I wanted to stay with 16's and there just isnt many choices for 16's plus I was able to spend my $ on tires.
