|c03morrison||so a lil update on this situation, i talked to my boss about the whole ordeal and looks like im going to be getting my wheels painted unless i can find a powder coating place for real cheap. but my boss will be paying for what ever kind of paint i want so im probs going to paint em black or like a dark charcoal. they will have a matte finish to them cus i feel like they will look better rather then be shiny|

Do not paint one spoke a different color. You're not Ken Block.

|c03morrison||so this morn at the end of my shift i gave my wheels a good cleaning cus they were dirty from my mech grabbing them and from spraying a crap ton of break away on the one he failed doing. well the day i got them done i tried just whipping the rim off with a rag and not everything came off and after scrubbing at them today come to realize the break away actually stained the powder coating so it is permanently dirty with light spots here and there. going to ask the head detailer to see if he can figure something out and if not off to my boss to see how i can get them clean whether i get them all repowdercoated or repainted.|

|c03morrison||ya i tend to ramble like that when i dont need to worry about getting a grade lol. the shop that did it wasnt the shop i would make pay for it cus they solved a problem that the shop i work at created. so i would just ask my boss to waive the charges on them for just balancing my wheels cus that all they really did. biggest issue would be i would need to get them all redone because first off idk the exact color code and second is it has a metallic in it and a flake added to it too. if anything i would have them spot me for the paint i would need to go buy to do this lil project of mine|

First thing I would do is get the shop that scratched them to pay for powdercoating...

|rambleon84||your shop probably doesnt have a machine for low profile tires, thats probably what the issue was. as for colors, i dont like the bright ones...they just to mesh with the rest of the car. i like the black the best.|
