Talking FINALLY POWDER COATED RIMS!!!

I've been dying to get rims powder coated ever since i got my car and i finally did! They are gloss black, i wanted to do the center caps but the guy told me they were plastic and you cant powder coat plastic. Do you guys think i should keep it the way it is or spray paint them black?? Open for opinions.

all I gotta say is I'm jealous. I'd also keep the center cap the way it is.

Do the center caps. They aren't hard I did them in a few coats speed out over an hour or so then hit them with clear and they make the wheels look so much better. Black lug nuts are sweet too

Looks awesome. If you don't mind me asking how much was it? I want to do this to mine a d here where I'm at its 100 a rim. If it can be done cheaper in south florida while still getting quality work I'm open to doing it when I go down every once and a while. Also I would leave the center caps the way it is.

I paid $125 a rim. I found places that said they could do $75 a rim but the place I went to had a lift to keep my car on so I had to go for the more expensive company.
