Powder Coated Wheels

Hi I'm thinking about powder coating my wheels. I have a black on black e93 m. I tried the search to the best of my abilities but came up empty when looking for full sides of the car photos with the powder coated wheels and I am specifically looking for the stock 19s and in any color that you decided to do them in. Thanks

The Gunmetal looks awesome. I was thinking of powder coating my rims but never thought about doing gunmetal. Any other colors people have powder coated their rims?

Both colors look so good. I can't decide which color I like better. Any thoughts for silverstone?

I just did mine in a custom Ferrari color (Grigio Medio). The possibilities are endless!

Look for plastidip also. Cheaper alternative and can be removed easily if you don't like it. Dipyourcar.com is the website. Good luck OP

Just be careful and make sure the powder coater is well known. Many people over heat the wheels and damage them!

What temp are we talking? Also, I've seen some people powder coat wheels multiple times, how will that affect wheel strength?

Those look so much better than black. Black wheels look so boring and played out.
