Default Black hubcaps?

Has anyone seen any black hubcaps for our stock wheels? The only thing left on my black xb that's not black are the hubcaps. I would buy wheels but I don't have the money yet. Something like the stock 9-spoke in black or whatever anyone could find.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I've also seen some hubcaps in a dark gunmetal that look OK...

Of course, painting flexible plastic like the Scion hubcaps requires the right primer and paint.

I thought about painting mine (i even bought some black paint for plastic) but i chickened out. It might look pretty ghetto, like painting your hood black to look carbon fiber.

But really, I have my eye on some nice wire hub caps now. So who I am to talk about ghetto.

before i bought rims, I did paint my hub caps black, and left the center scion logo unpainted. it looks pretty cool in my opinion.

My steelies look pretty nice when they're shined up. I still want to get some rims someday, but for now I like it better than the plastic saucers.

Thanks for all the replies. I'll probably end up painting the hubs if I can't find a decent replacement set.

I would buy a cheap set from pep boys if you really want to paint hubcaps. You might regret it, and then you would have the stock hubcaps to put back on.
