    Trying to decide if it's a look I want to go for. I've seen the TST 19" cyclones on a black car, but am looking to possibly powder coat or dip my OEM 19" wheels to either matte/gloss black, or dark gray.

    Thanks!

    I had my 19" OEMs done to match steel grey paint (now midnight silver, evidently). They match well.

    Highly recommend having a conversation with Bob Barnes at Verne's Chrome Plating in Gardena. In fact, if you're in the area at some point, it's worth dropping by his shop (call first to ensure he's present) since he has all of the color choices/samples right there.

    Also, an SvC may be able to loan you a set of wheels for the week while holding onto your tires (they'll give you the TPMS hardware to hold onto). They charged me $125 to re-mount and balance, which I figured was more than fair given the aforementioned work as well.

    Sorry, my car's a bit dirty from the rain, but you should get the idea. 19" turbines powder coated matte black, and red stickers on the center caps to match the calipers.

    Thanks, yeah, I'm happy how it turned out:

    - Chrome trim on the sides is all blacked out with vinyl wrap
    - Carbon fiber stickers on the side Tesla lights
    - Powder coated black 19" turbines with red center stickers
    - Tinted windows

    Have you considered leaving the spokes silver when you powder coat the OEM wheel... I think this combination look great with black. :cool:
