Stock Rims Painted or Powdercoatd Thread.

Many of you have painted their stock Rims, some flat out black, some gunmetal gray, some with a lip others two toned. Whatever you've done let's see some pics

Im a big fan of paint personally. Its worked out great on both cars I've owned. Its really only a durability issue, powder coating holds up better. Thats never mattered for me though because all my painted rims have been daily/winter rims.

Getting your wheels powder coated will be more durable than painting....sometimes cheaper as well.

Orange stripe looks cool

Ive also thought about doing black face and then red in the inside part of the spokes.
