What Color Pwdr Coat for My wheels?

tyring to think of ideas, right now all I can think of is gloss or satin black,

I have a set these and don't really care for the paint, plus they are pretty cheaply finished anyway, have some rash & stuff so I'd like to paint them myself or powder coat them, oddly I can't find any local shops that will paint them for me which would be cheaper that coating them, it's going to be like $350 to coat them.


20 inch American Racing Phantom Black Aftermarket Alloy Wheel Rim 20x8 5 Set | eBay


any one have any better ideas?

thanks

yeah, they ride quite nice & balanced too, just as good as the stock wheels, a little stiffer than the 18's ofcourse, but no road noise.

I just got to get em refinished & get new tires, I'm thinking flat black powder coat.
