    I am looking for advice on these tube steps. I like the OEM ones from Toyota, but the Westin Chrome will match my trim and back bumper.

    I have searched the forum, but haven't found the exact answer I am searching for.

    How is the quality of Westin? Do they rattle, and does the chrome hold up? Is there a better chrome replacement for the OEM tube steps.

    I have found them here: http://www.amazon.com/Westin-22-5050-Polished-Stainless-Steel/dp/B00171ZHY0

    I am ready to order but would like some reassurance from fellow members that have these bars.

    Thanks in advance.

    Those steps are stainless steel, not chrome. Chrome plated steel will rust, stainless does not which is why it's typically more expensive. I can't speak for those steps but you should not have any issues with stainless steel.

    My mistake calling them chrome. I guess what I meant was I wanted some that were shiny chrome looking like the bumper. The OEM ones look good, but are a dull finish
    Thanks for the response.
