I didn't see any previous threads discussing having the stock Roadster wheels powder coated. My roadster came with stock silver wheels and looked great, but I wanted to have more contrast between the wheels and the body so had the wheels powder coated. I had never investigated getting wheels powder coated and surprisingly found that there are not many choices in my area for getting a quality job done. After quite a bit of searching and asking around I found a place that would do them. The most difficult part of the job according to the shop was getting the existing coating off without damaging the wheels. Apparently the existing coating is quite durable. While the car was wheel-less, I upgraded to Carbotech AX6 brake pads. I'm quite happy with the results.
