    powder coating is the best method to use when you want to change wheel color. it's far superior to paint as far as durability, quality, and appearance. it will be money well spent.

    the wheels will have to be sand blasted first then powder coated so keep this in mind when dealing with the shop and know what their price includes.

    if it's plastic, most shops won't do it so you'll have to get it color matched at a body shop. however, the good powder-coaters can work with composite plastic if they've experimented with it before. with regular plastic, they recommend you just get it painted.

    Powder coated stock wheels for my winter tires. Very nice. We don't salt the roads up here (except intersections) so I will see how the first winter wears on them.
