Powder coated rims?

I could have sworn I saw someone had a WK2 with either powder coated rims or black rims on it. Anyone know where that picture is? Trying to convince my wife we need to powder coat the rims charcoal.

Re: Powder coated rims?

The mopar black rims are actually pretty cool looking, I like the black with the small amount of clear aluminum. Not sure if they are actually out for sale yet

Re: Powder coated rims?

I think powdercoating in grey will look sick on almost any color GC. That would probably be my first mod if I bought one. (which I am still on the fence about) I see way too many black rims these days.

I have difficulty in distinguishing Charcoal from Black at times unless they're parked side by side.
