Powder coated brembo wheels

Pretty soon I'm gunna powder coat my 2011 5.0 brembo wheels, and I can't figure out what would look cleaner. Matte black, or a Gloss. Any one have any pictures of it done. Thanks!.

In would say don't waste your money and just get different wheels do you can get a wider tire on it. But if our dead set on your brembo wheels I would say do them a matte finish! But I'm a little biased since I have matte wheels on my black gt

Re: Powder coated brembo wheels

What's the turn-key cost of getting them done? Roush sells the "Track Pack" wheels, already black for $239 a wheel. Assuming you can sell your current wheels ... that may be an attractive option depending on the cost to have them done.

Ford Racing sells them, too - bur Roush has them for $10 less.

They told me it was going to be 120$ per wheel. 480$ for all 4. The wheels are still on there. So I guess if I wanted to sell the brembos, I would be without my mustang for a little bit. Thats if someone wants to buy them...

Re: Powder coated brembo wheels

Lots of people told me I could easily move the wheels for $150 each, making my net cost of the new ones about $100, less than getting them coated using your pricing.

I'd buy the new ones up front, and then sell the others afterwards. Admittedly, you're taking a chance that you won't be able to see the originals. However, I think they are a good deal at $150 each.

This is the strategy I am going to use when I get the money to front the cost of the new rims.

Okay! I'm for sure gunna powder coat them! Do you have any pictures of a black mustang with powder coated matte white wheels? I just don't want to "trick" things up. I'm really liking the matte black.

Re: Powder coated brembo wheels

Tell you the truth black and hi gloss black sounds nice, but makes your car look like you got spares on. Go with matte black so you can tell the difference! that or make them gloss black with a silver/chrome lip!

It's not black but maybe helps a lil.. I personally would suggest paint instead of powder coat.. Have seen several people have issues w powder coat coming off on several different things, wheels, body parts, etc.. Had the body shop at my dealership do mine for me.. Turned out perfect and i personally like the gloss more than matte..

A lot of folks have had excellent results with the Duplicolor Wheel paint, and there are several "how to" videos on You Tube.

Yeah I heard about that! Only concerns are how good it looks, and will it wear off. I think spending more money on powder coating them in the long run would be worth it.

I dont. IMO black on black dont look good unless its matte or 3 shades lighter than the car. White rims only look good on white cars or non black cars. To me it looks very tacky, but that s my opinion.

A good alloy, machined, chrome(sometimes), silver, polished look,good on black.

While I disagree with your view on blacking out, it's refreshing to see someone that has their own style and does not go with what's cool or what everyone else has. I'm really beginning to appreciate your tastes

Painted:









and the website for the brembo stencil, I used the 2 inch probably should have gone with the 3 inch.

Brembo Stencil

another thread with my pics of the calipers.

I'm in love: FRHP, MGW, Calipers, and More

I had the calipers removed when I installed the FRHP...unfortunately the brake fluid would not stop leaking and the party that painted the calipers did not break them down further to try to stop it. I didn't want them to either more money i would have had to spend. But it isn't very noticeable and most of it is on the back side. All and all I'm happy with the way it turned out. It is the same color as all the yellow accents.

Are your brembo wheels powder coated a semi gloss? And I'm guessing you had to buy 2 new rear brembo calipers. I like the look of the yellow contrast with the black on black. I think I might do my calipers orange or red.

Thanks my man! Your car looks good and for sure like no other with the color touch of yellow just right.I use to have a old stang that was Black and Gold.A Pretty gold.
Anyway,I appreciate the Brembo link.I will try the 3 inch stencil.I have the premium Car as you may see in my pic's and wanting to take the leap of doing blue.I have the blue racing stripe in my seat which was the OEM package I wanted.Blue is my only option IMO or just Black out.I could do some flat black but I want to take this shot a the blue.Wish I could photo shop.I want to do the calipers blue and stencil the Brembo black.I would do the 5.0 blue and the Dot in Factory black.I already plasti-dipped the "ford" area of my trunk badge.Would do the "GT" in blue.Already Got the blue going under the hood too.Just need to do maybe something else blue Exterior wise.Wish I knew for sure what it would look like first though.

Thanks...I think you should go for it, for sure it is something no one has done and it would look really good, all that blue just right on the outside. My only thing is try to keep all the blue the same color. I used the MGP caliper covers on the rear. As for the 3 inch, it is up to you, I think in comparison with the standard 3 inch might be better. The 2 inch seemed just a little smaller than the standard brembo...Good luck and can't wait to see the pics.

Oh for sure!! 100% sure to keep all the blues the same.That would be the ONLY way to make it look right.So, in you opinion the 3'' stencil will fit and look a little better? Also, I could buy the MGP for the rear and paint the my blue.......Is that what you did? Use your yellow on a DIY rear covers?

Cool, the only way to go IMO. As for the stencil that is just my opinion, you can see how small it is in the picture. Measure the length of the brembo logo that is on there now, that is probably what I should have done, but I just went with the 2 inch. Thought that would be close. It is up to you. I'm sure you could do that with the caliper covers for the rear. At the time I wasn't in the painting mode, so I just paid the extra to have them do it, and of course the logo and dots on the caliper covers they did as well.

My thought was if I could get the part prepainted that was less I had to deal with. It takes some time to paint your own stuff...
