Powdercoating brembo rims

Im thinking of powder coating the stock brembo rims gold.

Any recommendations on where to go? I live in NY.

The problem is your car is already a gold color. That would be too much. Maybe if you you went with a different set of wheels? Something with a polished lip, the gold might not seem so bad. This'll give you an idea what gold on gold looks like.Click image for larger version

I love gold/yellow/bronze. My car is gold and I was going for the gold on gold color. Guess you guys don't like that.

Im not fan of matching the rims and body color the same, except white, but unless,you,mix the colors up like black rims and gold lip or viceversa then It might look bad ***! IMO do it but mix the colors

How about black rims with good lug nuts?

How much did the dealer paint your rims for?

That'd be nice just prolly wouldn't last w having to take them off when you get tires and what not.. And my wheels were pitting really bad so I talked them into repainting them under warranty.. They said around $400 is what it prolly woulda costed though..

I am wanting to have my factory brembo's painted black. Did you have them remove the wheels before painting and then remount them or did they just tap off and paint? They look freaking awesome!

Also they supposedly used a clear coat that was harder or something like that.. They called and checked w some people to see what would be the best to use..

Like I was saying above it was covered under warranty bc mine were pitting and I talked them into it.. But I'm pretty sure they said around $400.. Said MAYBE $350

Sorry, I skipped through the thread. Even at $400, that beats buying new wheels. I love these wheels, I just want them black. They totally change the appearance of your car. They look awesome.

Can't really see you doing anthracite on your car, maybe chrome or some sort of machined wheels
