Anyone have any luck on refinishing ZCPs w powder coat to match OEM finish? Mine need to be touched up and thinking of powder coating.

Hyper silver is pretty hard to paint match, I don't think you'll ever get 100% match

Mine, fresh off a quick wash. Needs a paint correction, so many swirls :/
Damn. E92s look so hot in Melbourne red! (Might be biased...)

Personally, these wheels lose some of their best looks when black... I'd just refinish in silver if it were me.

I was also on the fence about refinishing. I was afraid matching Hyper Silver wouldn't be perfect and I'd hate it... So i went with my second preference of Satin Black. Looks awesome. Here's a pic of my car for reference.

New addition to my stable. Decided to pick up brand new OEM ZCP wheels and center caps as the originals were a little beat up from the previous owner and I HATE curb rash.

^ Great shot!!

Black looks nice on some builds, but it does hide some of the beauty of the wheels.
I like the gunmetal because it shows the details, while still offering some contrast to my AW, and hides brake dust (F* cleaning these wheels!). That said, silver is classic and I'll probably trade for silvers at some point just to mix things up.




Double Trouble (not sure why the upload quality looks like a potato, the original file is a sharp shot).

Thanks twin!

I highly recommend Mother's Aluminum Wheel Cleaner and an EZ Detail Wheel Brush for our alloys. Perfect combination that makes cleaning these wheels basically effortless even with a heavy coat of brake dust.
