Yeah, if you don't mind ... what did it run and how long did it take? I want to do this buy may just dip them to hold me over for $40.

Looks great. Now powder coat the brembo brakes (red).
How much did it cost you to powder coat the wheels (including removal of tires and all related costs)?

I got the wheels done at a very high end wheel shop called (Wheel Repair Solutions). It's in Dallas, tx. They charge 125$ a wheel and 480$ even for all four. That's taking them off, disassemble the tires, powder coat the wheels, rebalance and reinstall them. And normally they say bring it in before 5pm and it'll be ready at
10 am the next morning. They left all the lug nuts chrome which I like. 125$ might seem a little high compared to some places that do it for more like 50$ to 75$, but I'd rather spend more money and have it done right, than a little less and constantly be in disgust by the way it looks. Plus if I have any issues whatsoever, I can bring it in and they'll fix it free of charge. All in all, its a great company with tremendous service, and at the end of the day, I can be happy with my finished product.

Btw, I'm definitely going to check in on having the front 2 brembo calipers powder coated. And then buy covers for the rear. Any solutions on best looking color for them. I think red would be the best choice.

Re: 5.0 with the freshly powder coated brembo wheels!! (:

Quick turnaround ... My issue is that there is no place around here that is turn-key ... I have to have the tire removal and re-installation done elsewhere, and my car is my daily driver, so that's pretty darn inconvenient. I was thinking of buying the Ford Racing "Track Pack" rims already black ($239 at Roush) and selling my current set for maybe $130 - 150 each, but I stand the chance of getting stuck with two sets of rims.

I may just plasti-dip for now to hold me over. Hell, dip them and re-do it every year and have new looking rims all the time ... we'll see.

Your rims look great.

I took my Brembo wheels off my 13' and sold them for $600 in less than 24 hrs..you should have no problem selling the wheels.
