The powder coating is a no go...

No go on the powdercoating, so I painted them. What do you think?

I tried to get them bare with my home sandblaster, and it was a no go. How that dude skinned them up as bad as he did I do not know. It would have doubled the price to have the coating guy do all of it.

Powder coating is definately one way to make them unique, and one of a kind is the way to go...

Dark rims don't look good at all in my opinion, I think they are a fad just like ranch dressing was in the 90's.
