    I decided to go with something a bit different than the usual flat black on a Super White Tacoma. Dont get me wrong, I think it looks good. But Im waiting until I get some suspension and bigger tires before I slap these on my stormtrooper. . .

    TRD sport rims, white powder coat with black powder coat lugs and and black caps. Ill make that Toyota symbol white before I put them on too. What do you guys think?

    Doesn't work for sunny San Diego but you're looking at snow camo with all that white! Sub'd to see the outcome when you get them mounted

    plasti dipped wheel caps,

    not a bad idea. but if ur truck's already white, what about the other way around? black wheels, with a white center cap, for some contrast. unless your thinking of living it. opposite of blacking it out (murdered out)

    I happen to like it. It's different. Most everyone on here who has a white truck, to include me, usually goes with a mostly black wheel. I'm interested to to see how it all looks together. I'm betting it will look great. Good luck, OP.

    I don't like it. I'm specific in my taste also very picky. But I try to keep an open mind.

    I used to track a car with white wheels. After it was time to go home they were grey in color.

    It should look something like this with those wheels (excuse the bad photochop). I like it. Reminds me of my old 89 Grand Am SE.
