    I have the opportunity to powder coat my stock rims black for almost nothing. Is it worth it. I do a little light off roading here and there, mostly loging roads. Does anybody have them on Desert sand taco.

    Sounds as though the price is right so go for it. Alot on here have just painted them so powder coating them would be great since your getting them done for cheap and it should hold up quite well. Show pics when done.

    I was actually in between either getting new wheels or having mine powdercoated as well. I figured it would cost about the same to buy the new ones though. But if the price is right...would love to see pictures when they're done.

    Never seen gray done, Im in product manufacturing and have connections to suppliers that do powdercoating. I have a cupple buddys that want there rims done too. I have a graphic supplier, going to get my lower front bumper (inset part) done in matte black graphic. Was also looking at getting scratch resistant coating. The perks of being in manufacturing.:D
    Probably will get them done in next couple weeks. Will post pics and do a build thread then.
