    So I have been trying to decide what to do with my stock rims. I have kinda been trying to black out my truck a little. I'm thinking of spray painting them black, but I'm not sure how it will look with the basic toyota rims. I have these chrome wheel covers on that came with the truck, but there is the regular grey metal underneath. So I guess what I am asking is should I have them Black, Chrome, or Grey.

    If I do it I'll follow the directions everyone has put on here. Plus thee way I look at it if they don't look right then I can always put the chrome covers back on.

    It definitely changes the overall look of the truck...
    I still need to "black out" a few more things but it's getting there...
