Powder coating or Paint? on wheels
 
I am thinking of painting or powdercoating my wheels which are chrome now. Which would be a better process? I want to do black. But would matte or glossy? Any Ideas and help would be great.

Powder coat and matte black. That'd be slick.

Usually @ cost, it is probably $75-100 a wheel; then companies charge double...

My wheels cost $800 to powdercoat black chrome.


But yeah, go with pc!
