Talking Had my OEM wheels powder coated...

Inspired by an earlier contribution in this section of the site, I've had my OEM 19's refurbished. Diamond cut polished face with powder coated gloss black interior. The shop did a first class job in every respect

Nice....I'm still mulling over the colour for my spare set of OEM 19"ers...its a toss up between ltd edition gloss black and a light shadow chrome.

Just a FYI: my semi-gloss black (powdercoated too) stock 19s look matte black in 10 miles, so I wouldnt' lose any sleep over that decision .

I like the look of semi gloss black wheels as well....I wish there were picks of the oem 19"s in a shadow chrome so I could make my mind up.

These look familiar



Mine are matte (and very dirty in that pic...boo), just because I went with matte accents for the rest of the car, but you're right that brake dust accomplishes the same thing, haha.

OP, wheels look great. Congrats!

The oem 19" are some of the nicest wheels from the factory I have seen. Nice job with the black!

The stock 19s look better than 99% of the wheels out there.

Very good job indeed!
I like this look very much!
But you need black balancing weights instead of those silver ones
