    I picked up a second set of stock 2020 ORP rims to use for my snows. This gives me some flexibility to play with the look. My Plan:

    Plastidip matt black the rims, lug nuts ordered the kit so should be here shortly

    I am debating the Toyota Symbol and Ring around cap. It is easy to pull the symbol off looking for a vote:
    1) Paint Toyota Symbol Bright Red like the TRD Red color, leave rims,center cap, center ring flat black
    2) Paint Toyota Symbol and the Ring around Cap Red, everything else flat black

    3) Leave Symbol Chrome, paint the rest flat black
    4) just paint it all black

    Since I can remove the symbol it is easy to do a clean paint job.

    All black no to red.

    My 2 cents.

    I've seen people color them and it looks cheesy to me. Just trying to hard.

    Sure why not.
    My front Toyota lettering is red, and I added vinyl overlays in red on the 3 TRD badges

    Make it to your liking, not someone else’s, you can always change it later if you decide to go another direction. It’s your ride, do it for you.
