Had my wheels powder coated Gloss Black, they came out fantastic and will look very agressive one the car is lowered and tinted! Making custom center caps next week at my shop to be powdercoated as well. Anyway.......

$75/wheel. Stripped all the wheels old paint and media blasted them. Several trips thru the heat to ensure a good bonding. Just a small 2 man company. Young owner, was just pleased to get my business, they did a great job! They do ceramic coatings as well, had a bunch of headers hanging in their little shop!

I liked it as well, but I wanted something original/different. All opinions are cool everyone doesnt like everything everyone does!

WOW...I LOVE them!!! I think that getting my wheels Super Mirror Black powdercoated would look awsome on my Black SS....And for only $75 a wheel.....you can't beat it!

The black looks good, but you always need something to offset Black Wheels and tires. Together they will have a bland plain look to them.. I love the Gloss black rims with the chrome lip myself, but yeah man its different!

no shit? hey is there anyway you could send them a picture of a tog header and see how much they would charge to ceramic coat it for me? i want to get the prototype coated so i can keep it. right now it's just bare metal with some high temp paint on it.

i found a local shop but they want to charge out the ass to do it.

and the wheels look good... $75 is damn cheap for a good powdercoat. i was thinking i might have mine done in red..

I have thought of doing the same thing for my rims but instead they would be white on red car.

I thought I would want to get thin 5 spoke rims for that it maybe to much white using the the factory spoke wheel. What do you guys think?

I contemplated white a couple of times, but black had me early! I wish I had photochop skillz, or even photoshop for that manner lol!

I hope to have the wheels back on the car next weekend for pictures. (and I need to see them on very soon!)

I like them as well. But to set them off, I would have done the inside and side of spokes red and kept the faces black. Hope you can follow that. Can you powdercoat two different colors at once???? But they look bad ass.
