Wink So I Powder Coated My Wheels..

I had them done by a good friend of mine here on Staten Island. I highly recommend him for any and all things metal that you can powder coat. He does the job right and won't allow any work to go out his doors if it would give him anything less than a fully satisfied customer. For any questions or quotes shoot him an email at info@espospowdercoating.com

Now, these were my first wheels, and been through a beating over the time I have had them. Curbing and brake dust pitting all over them as a Hyper Silver wheel. After having another set of wheels and coming back to these, I decided to powder coat them. Here is the finished product with a few pictures I took.

WARNING: DO NOT get white wheels if you do not enjoy cleaning your wheels every 15 minutes ! Oh boy do these things get dirty. Had them for two days and they've been cleaned five times already. But, all the dirt just wipes right up with your finger, the gloss finish is amazing.

Im in the UK, but prices I've seen would convert to around $120 per wheel. Best would be to ask round some places local to you.

My wheels I just sold were LM Reps. Loved them, but had an 8.5 front, and didn't like the single lip, and 19's just gave me too harsh of a ride. Originally I was going to do the same thing, he mentioned on one piece wheels (reps) to only do a face, he would have to tape the lip and repolish them and retape them, etc. A lot more work necessary that a regular wheels in one full color or a two/three piece wheel were he can just do the faces alone. The extra work he says is not exactly cost effective because he would have to charge accordingly. Better off spending a little more and just buy real LM's.

I wanted to originally do a color such as dark mattalic blue or burgundy red metallic. LOved the colors, just wasn't sure of it on my car. White I knew would look good. Can't complain about these tires at all, for the price, I better not ! Hah.

Currently on Eibach springs, they are a bit bouncy, impossible to have 19" wheels because of it. When I find 1300 to buy some KW V1, maybe I'll do it

I hope so, I'll try it out. I am definitely now in the market for something that will help repel some brake dust.

I would get Suspension Technique coilovers but since you have snow and salt, KW V1.
For dust, maybe change out the pads?

Looks great, love the color, but realistically for me that's one of the last colors I would do esp in florida with the constant rain and road grime. Would be sick for a show setup tho. I just couldnt pull over every 20 min to clean them.
