POWDER-COATED WHEEL PICS

Just like the thread title suggests, post up pics of powder coated wheels. I'm tired of my blingy DC2 and considering changing the color.
I'm really interested to see examples on SSM Tacos. My initial thoughts were to go anthracite (ish), but then I'm thinking maybe the contrast of blacked out would look better. So possibly a darker charcoal finish. Lets see your pics and hear yalls thoughts on this.
My inspiration was JasonJump's pics, totally sick!

I think graphite might be the next dark color from anthracite.

Here is mine stock wheels in anthracite.

Thanks Jones, just what I was looking for. Looks great, may have to copy-cat. Did you have them cleared as well?

They are cleared at well. The guy powdercoating them said it was best to do that since there were black specs in the powder.

No shit! I didn't know clear pc was possible. Then again, I don't really know much of anything about PCing which is part of the reason I started this thread..........

Somewhere around $220 for all 4 wheels. This was just the sandblasting and powdercoating, not tire dismounting or mounting afterwards.

I had these wheels done in graphite, a little darker than anthricite. These are not clear coated, its almost like a satin finish, which is what I was hoping for. The wheels are from an older 4Runner

When done in hoping they match the FJ TT wheels close enough. Center caps on order, the suspense is killing me.
