    Im getting my stock taco wheels powder coated and was wondering if flat black (which my buddy has on his stock tacoma) or glossy black would look better? :confused:

    just go with what you like best. either finish can look good or equally bad. it all depends on the rest of the truck.

    It's an 89 Toyota Pickup. I got some stuff done to it.. FJ axles going under it soon.
    if you like flat black, get a satin black done..or a satin graphite color would be even sicker

    Gloss black looks good too..I wouldn't recommend flat black. You might as well just rattle can thm

    Post a pic of your truck and lets get a vote, i had Satin before, I would go gloss, flat gets stained easily.

    I vote for satin charcoal gray.

    Flat black looks too dull - not worth spending the $$ for powder coating.

    And IMO glossy looks stupid when your tires aren't 100% clean and dark black
