    Has anyone plasti-dipped the alloys under the hubcaps?

    Curious to see what they look like!

    While I do believe they look good, this wheel & tire combo would be a mistake for a few reasons.

    1) These 18x8" Toyota OE wheels are very heavy.

    2) The matching 225/40-18 tires are (on average) heavy.

    3) Your total wheel & tire weight will be ~46 lbs to ~49 lbs.

    4) This represents roughly a ~40% to ~48% increase in unsprung weight over the stock OE 15" wheels and tires.
