Black Competition Package wheels....

I've recently purchased a 2011.75 e92 in mineral white with the comp. package wheels and was wondering if anyone knew if I had a high end body shop spray them black and clear them how would they hold up??? Would it just be a better option to buy another set in black ??

My buddy got a price of $600 to dismount the tires, powercoat and re-install the tires.
Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."

Wheel shop here in Nashville quoted me $150/wheel to get my 220m wheels done. Sounds about right to me. Of course you get what you pay for.

Make sure you get them powder coated, not painted. They will hold up for a long time.
