    it would be a flat black.

    They dont make these wheels anymore, they arent really that popular, i dont think i have ever seen them on any other truck.. other than one guy on toyota nation

    SilverSeven,

    Would you mind sharing your setup for your truck? I have an '08 double cab and looking to do something like what you have. Are the gears still factory as well? I'm a novice at this stuff.

    They look good now but black would complete the look of your truck in my opinion. Nice looking truck beeteadubs.

    no problem man!
    It currently has stock gears, and has for the last year + running fine, but i do plan on upgrading to 4.88s in the near future.

    Currently I am running a procomp stage 1 6" lift with Alcan 6" leaf pack in the rear to eliminate the blocks and stock springs. I added extended stainless steel brake lines front and rear, however this was not entirely necesary, but i feel better now.

    The rims are 18" helo blasters, polished aluminum, and the tires are 35" Pro Comp extreme mud terrains.

    All in all i love the setup, just got the leaf pack installed and am loving the solidity of it. Next is coilovers, sliders, gears, exhaust, headers, 4 link rear, etc...

    I battled that same question for a while, then I said what the heck, painted them and never regretted it. Go for it.
