    I have a '01 Taco which I bought used. The rims are the same color as the truck (silver), but are getting a little rusty around the outer edges. I've thought of sanding and painting them black, but now I wonder if I shouldn't sand and paint the same color as the truck. The paint should be available somewhere. I really can't afford anything new right now, any suggestions??
