Talking Powdercoated Wheels Before & After

Before and After pics of my 09 BMW 335i.





































YES I'm WELL aware my car is dirty...and it needs tire shine...annnd I still need to black out the side blinker. Just wanted to show you guys the wheel comparison.

BIG THANKS to the guys at http://www.precision-powder-coat.com/ for a great job on my wheels. Lou really bent over backwards to help me out.

FAQ:

1) Price was $550 total for powder coating, tire/wheels dismounted, mounted and balanced...not to mention letting me store my car there for a week.

2) Powder Coat color is Jet Black (has a gloss to it)

3) Tint is 20% all around.

4) Wheels are 18"

5) Pics taken with my super awesome Blackberry Bold LOL

UPDATED PICS WHEN SHE'S CLEAN HA:

Thanks man! Most ppl love the look...I actually really love my stock wheels so that's why I decided to just powder coat them puppies.

Looks good but $550 is kind of steep for powder coat.

Ban him for painting his wheels before those side reflectors.




Nice ride bud, and def looks allot better. I like it. If you drop the car it will look perfect.

I hope for $550 they dismounted and remounted your tires as well. Looks quality though.
