Some here have black rims. I have considered doing that- I had a set of Porsche rims powder coated satin black one (For a guards red 911) and they looked bad ass.

Some good pics on Google;

I used plasti dip a few months ago. Seems to hold up well. I finally cleaned off the glowing orange Uwharrie mud with ease.

I have an extra set of Freestyles I would sell if you want them to get powder coated.

Those Black Wheels all look good. The OEM silver color is looking dated now.

Agree - May powder coat mine. I like the white SW's look - black wheels with the chrome lug nuts.

Anybody powder coat white or limestone? I have black Dakar wheels and am tempted to powder coat them sort of a limestone color. I've always liked Disco steel rims in white.
