Powder Coated wheels - Recommendations?

In going for a "bling" look to my car, I want gloss black wheels.
Mark at BMAutosport has been very helpful, but has put me off my choice aftermarket wheels because I want to retain the option of using runflats.
The only other aftermarket options are beyond my chosen budget.

So the solution seems to be having my current wheels (193's) painted/coated.

Can anyone recommend a place vaguely Midlands/NorthWest that will do me a good job???

Can I assume that powder coating is the best way to go???

Thanks
Mike

Thanks Guys.

Going to meet someone today who is having his race car wheels powder coated - see who he recommends (he also runs an X5 and M3)
