Getting wheels powder coated, What color should I get?
Here is a pic of my current wheels on my car. Since this picture was taken the car has been lowered, I have removed the white decals on the side and my VIS Invader Hood will be here soon. What color should I have my wheels changed to, I was thinking black or blue. What do you all think????

i'd say stick with a dark color like black or gunmetal, dont do gold or bronze or white.

blue would be too much, since you already have so much blue on the outside thumbsup

It looks like I need to find out what my powder coater can do..

I have seen some of his work but mostly black, white and blue...

If he can do gunmetal I guess that is the way to go.. IF not then black...
