If I powder coat my wheels, chances are one day I will lower the car and the wheels won't look good. I hate the bagged look.


Shop around all the wheel places until you find something you like at a good price 🤷*♀️

is not cheap, that's why I don't do it lol $1300 minimum for some unknown gloss black painted wheels


I can powder coat the stock wheels for $600


Before you say, if you can't afford it, why are you thinking about it. I can pay cash for wheels, lowering springs and shocks right now on the spot, but I'm the kind of person who thinks about the future. I'd rather have money in the bank for emergencies and to get out of debt. It is hard to part away with thousands of dollars for just small change in looks.


Modding properly is expensive and you won't get any of that money back, which will be thousands and thousands.

They all sell for very similar prices. Where did you get yours?
