Default What color should i powder coat my wheelz

So the advans RGs that i just bought are in rougher shape that i had thought. Well two of them are anyways.

One has a curb rash and another wheel has big chunks of paint bubbling and chipping off.

So i think im going to powdercoat them. Sucks that ill be losing the blue stripe though

What color should i do? I was originally thinking redoing the pearl white or maybe mag blue?

Halp?

Not going to lie, I really like the look of silver+dark purple. Then again, I like rims that are more flashy/stand out. Maybe if you did dark purple you could find a way to keep the stripe, but inverse it so it's white.

I powder coated a bmx frame in a really nice dark candy purple, that would look really dope too

still weighing out my options.

Also just contacted my buddy that paint cars to see how much he'll charge to paint it and keep the blue stripe

Yeah I wouldn't sacrifice the stripe.

Would just paint.

Those rims are super sick... I kinda like your last idea a lot; maybe you can just fix the imperfections, mask off the stripe, and then respray them all. I've had damn good luck with spray paint to be honest when I first painted some $90 winter rims I got off craigslist.

Just get them refurb'd and then have your paint buddy do them white again with the blue stripe

Dark green would look good with the dark blue line painted white.

I hate techs that put wheel weights on the lip of painted wheels.

Damn Sam, make sure that one wheel isn't bent, that's a huge chunk missing. Those can be repaired by a competent wheel shop too. I'd have them professionally done if it was me. Don't just go to a powdercoater, they don't know **** about wheels and heat. Powdercoating can change the grain of the aluminum if done incorrectly.

Always liked those wheels even if they are cast.
