Hey all,

I love the look of black alloy/steel wheels on our Tacomas. I know of a couple members here that have painted their stock wheels black. Just wondering if any of you could post photos of this so I can see if I'm into that look.

Thanks in advance,

Beave

I did some '03 alloys with black Krylon paint and they came out pretty nice.

Unfortunately, my photo hosting site is down, otherwise I would post a picture.

I can email some pictures if you would like.

Emailed you. I included a picture of my current wheels to give you another look that is really slick.

that's definately a different look. I think it might look better if you bought some black lugs. Are those available?

Just lightly sanded them and shot em'..The Hammerite Rust Oleum paint gives a textured finish, so it hides most all imperfections and is very easy to touch up..

I know this wont help but the rear bumper I have had a spot where the winch was so I mounted my 2nd battery there but took it out so I can re-fab the housing.
