    Powder coating them will be your best option.

    I will be plasti-dipping mine this weekend. I bought the Pro center caps to blend better. Will post photos on my build thread when complete.

    Powder coat black and swap out center caps with TRD Pro ones....
    That is what I plan on doing. I wanted to wait until I need new tires, but I don't rack up many miles so I may just do it this summer.

    What are you guys being quoted on powdercoating 4 of these wheels? I plan on doing this as well whenever I find some regular TRD rims for sale in my area. First guy I talked to said $80 per wheel, which seems a little steep.

    A few years ago a local place with a great reputation was charging $40/wheel for a dealer. I may go through the dealer (friend) if the price is better. The price may have gone up though, that was about 5 years ago.

    How did the rims turn out? I also want black rims. I ordered the Fuel Cleavers from Carid.com and they DO NOT FIT...Calibers are too big. I am trying to get my money back now. Another rim shop said the guy who makes the Cleavers said the 18"s won't work either. I really want a set of Black TRD rims for it. The Rock Warrior rims are all 18" if I'm not mistaken. Any suggestions?

    All the RW rims are the Gray ones I already have on my Tundra. Also I'm having a difficult time with Carid.com on returning these rims which don't fit.

    Carid.com made me take my rims back to my rim shop, and have them place my rims on my truck, to take a picture before they would even consider letting me return them. Now I have to wait and see what they say. I did find a place that will PC my RW rims for $99/a wheel. Bad thing is they have a 2 week turnaround time. I'm going to borrow my buddies 20's he took off his 2014 Tundra while I get my rims done.

    18" Cleavers do fit.
