    These are not factory Toyota FJ Trail Team edtion wheels. If the look in the add it says "Genuine Toyota FJ Cruiser Trail Team Replica Wheels". This guy is a local dealer who came up with the idea to have the silver FJ wheels stripped and recoated.

    They do look good. But I think you could buy the FJ silver version of the same wheel for about $150 each and have the powdercoating done yourself. I was thinking about having that done to one of the silver ones, for my spare. I priced it out and the wheel and powdercoating was cost me $200 total. The center caps will cost you maybe $30 each max. So you would still be money ahead.

    Hey guys, just so you know, it took 6 different powdercoating attemps, from 4 different powdercoaters to get the finish correct. :)

    I'm in AZ too. Who is the powdercoater that you used? It looks like good work.

    Thats what I was afraid of- if you get the wheels powdercoated, who is to say they will match the centercaps already black. If you gett the centercaps powdercoated black, you gotta paint the interior red to look right. Its a pain it seems like. I think I'm gonna save and cop the ones already made like these "replicas"
