    Bought my 16 with steelies. Found some alloys off of a 2010 for $100. I got them powdercoated this week. I think they turned out nice. I went this route because I wanted to keep 18" wheels and I had seen these in black and actually liked them. I also paid less to buy them and have the work done than if I have just bought black aftermarket wheels. If anyone is in the Cincinnati area, I know a powdercoated that does great work.4d258e68b760342b782d830174c4c0c6_68400bfa224e1a5a3c6a30e0ccca832209e6b7f9.jpg

    That is the plan. I am going to paint the chrome Toyota T a graphite color to give it a bit of a ghost effect.

    Powdercoat ran me about $415. That was sandblast and prep, primer coat and powder.

    Man, these look amazing. I have been toying with the idea of getting mine powdercoated with a gunmetal look. I am in Cincinnati (Maineville up by Kings Island). I'd love to know where you went. We'll have to connect sometime!

    For sure! I am up in Mason quite a bit. Live in Finneytown/Wyoming area.

    I went to Killer Koatings in Covington. Great group of guys. Pretty reasonable on prices and quick turn around. They are on facebook.

    I painted my center caps black and dark gray. 4 coats of Rustoleum Automotive black and 3 coats automotive clear coat in gloss. The emblems were Rustoleum charcoal and painted the in the same way.

    Totally changed the look of the truck.

    Nice wheels they look great on the truck. I have a set of Steel wheels and was thinking of powder coating them or plasti-dipping them to have a back up set from my aftermarket wheels.

    Those look great! If I were you I'd get some Toyo's or Nitto's to put on them sexy wheels.

    Try plastidip first. Super cheap. Www.dipyourcar.com has kits starting at around $40 for wheels. It was my second option if i didn't do powdercoat.

    Yea, let's try to connect. I think it would be cool to find other Tundra owners also. There is a Tundracrew FB page that you might like as well. I've been able to find some local guys there as well.

    I'll check out Killer Koatings. I just purchased a Toytec spring set from someone and am thinking about getting them powdercoated as well.

    Thanks!!

    Hopefully you have better luck with them then myself. I had my TRD wheels powder coated black and 5 months later I've already got some chipping/cracking in some spots from romping around off road...
