Check out my pics. I had mine powdercoated "black chrome". Some like it some don't. I still have an affinity for the "lighter" colored wheels. I would say, however, that powdercoating is the way to go. Adds virtually no weight (probably net 0) and is inexpensive and is very easy to change if you want to. Good luck!lahori said:i have AC Schnitzer Type III multi-piece wheels. i am considering "painting" the inner piece gun-metal. has anyone got their wheels powdercoated or painted?
The camera doesn't capture light the same as our eyes. Not to mention that we have 2 eyes vs just one for the camera and it plays a big pard in hyper reflective colors like shadow chrome.One thing I have noticed in pictures, is that painted/powdercoated black rims never look right in pictures. Whats the deal with that? Why are they never black enough?
