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.

You know, I'm normally not a fan of black rims on a black car, cause sometimes it makes the tires always look dirty, no matter how clean you keep them. That being said, I think this looks great, keep it as is

They look great as is, you might like it better the other way. You could always plasti-dip them and peel it off if you don't like it.

They do look great just the way they are. Black bowtie inserts ever cross your mind (center caps) ?

You can do the center caps easy. The place I had them done didn't think it was a problem. It's been a year since my rims got coated and everything is still black and looking good. Your car looks great and I know you'll be happy with the look for a looong time!
