  • Powder coat my rims? caracked rim updated w pics.

    I'm looking into getting my rims re-finished, the curb rash is getting nasty. I was considering also getting them powder coated black at the same time. Opinions??

          Thanks for the photoshop, I think If I get the powder coated, I'll leave the lip chorme.

          Also I'm not painting the car.

                      Yeah do them Matte black, not gloss black though. Like my old 5zigen rims.

                        I vote no. They look better left alone. Just get them powdercoated with an auto clear coat.

                            I say leave them silver, looks way better with the color of the car. Black is starting to show up on everyones cars and even moreso black with polished lip. You're almost more unique leaving them silver now.

                              Aint that the truth. I have a set of black wheels with a polished lip, but I find myself preferring my white Koseis because the others are almost too common where K1s are becoming more rare.
