Need Some Help with Wheel Choices and what to do.
 
Hello guys well, I have been dead set lately on acquiring Gloss Black SRT repros for the future. But I have been really paranoid about getting them stolen. Everytime I mention wheels locks, I get the response it only slows them down :(. So basically I have a few questions, should I risk it and stick to my oringinal plan and get Gloss Black SRT repros?

My other choices, my Jeep currently has this wheel Silverblade #1: http://www.wjjeeps.com/wheel_2_silverbl.jpg

Is it possible to powdercoat? The centercaps are plastic so how do I make those black to match then? Only problem is if I do this my front passenger wheel is dmaged (from previous owner :rolleyes:) rash and some weird bubbling wround the centercap.

My second option which I dig but it isn't quite the same as the repros is aquire these Jeep ronin wheels and powedercoat, again is that possible to do and what about the centercap:

I put the first option, but instead of replacing the entire rim, just have them refurbished and then powder coat them, the center cap can be powder coated along with the wheel.

Isn't the center caps for our wheels, plastic? I don't even think they can hold up to powder coating.

And yeah I've been looking up some wheel refurbishment places if anything.

LMAO @ Gorilla Glue and a black widow, how the hell would I take either of those off haha. But really whats a good brand of wheel locks haha.

And Dave I'll call you if I get them haha.
