Powdercoat picture??

My question here is simple, is powdercoating really worth 75 dollars a rim plus paint??? That adds up to 400 dollars. I really want my black ss/sc to have powdercoated gunmetal rims.....but that seems like a high price just to basically have my rims a different color. I think it would look great, but I could just get different rims for that price. Will someone with powdercoated rims please post a picture so that I can try to make up my mind. thank you

is that the best deal you could find? a couple years back, i looked into having my wheels done on my bike, and i was quoted i think $50 per wheel. i would have to check around again, but that seems kind of pricey to me.

Wait... why didn't you just get the gunmetal rims from the factory?

I think they are worth it IF you're doing a durastic change. If you're going from silver to gunmetal, than no.

Are you a hard driver, or are you calm and collective?

Also, do you usually settle with one thing, and not change. IF you do this powdercoating, will you be changing your mind a year later? If so, than it isn't worth it.
