Thanks guys. Your wheels look great. Where did you get the center caps. The place I'm taking the wheels says they don't do center caps. I found some black caps on eBay but didn't know if that would work. It's eBay... Hit or miss sometimes

Guess I need black lugs now too

The shop that powder coated mine painted the center caps for me. The black lugs are a personal preference and I thought the contrast of the polished lugs and black wheels gave me the look I wanted. Good luck!

I agree, the lugs may be too much in black. I too like a little contrast. Ill plastic dip the lugs on one wheel first to see if I like the look before I order black lugs.

We have gone back and forth between gloss black powder coat and the black chrome finish to match the Vapor. Our Jeep is Brilliant black and sometimes the all black look can take away from the vehicle. Although the red brembos stand out more with the black wheels.

I gave the green light for the black gloss finish today, should be done next week!

I got mine done recently it's a gloss black with sliver flake in it, the place didn't have the black chrome I wanted. I think the silver flake makes the details of the wheel stand out more.

My tire guy messed up the finish on my wheels so we came to a nice agreement for a discounted power coating for $200 (all 4 and paint center caps). Normally around here (north Jersey) anywhere from 200-350 a wheel depending on the shop.
