    The only tacky-looking thing on my '97 FJZ are the peeling plastic imataion chrome hub caps. Are real chrome ones or after-market ones available?

    Many on here have just repainted them...I just painted mine all black...a few coats with a spray can. Been about 7months and they are holding up fine. Some have done some really nice work on them.

    Do a search and you should get some pics.

    best.

    Some OEM rims were chromed. The ones that I beat all to hell that came on my LX are OEM and polished chrome.

    The caps that came with them, unfortunately, were not OEM. Shiny "chrome" on plastic caps.
