    I remember seeing a post about a shop in Santa Ana that works on Tesla wheels and calipers that was highly recommended for powder coating. I can’t find it now. Can anybody help point me to that shop in Santa Ana, Ca?

    Me too. I plan to get mine done in a matte black after I throw my snow tires on when winter hits next year. BTW, my snows will be the 18" T-Sportline Turbines in matte black.

    I had Luis power coat my 19" sport wheels gun metal grey with satin finish. They turned out great! I also had him paint my calipers red. I definitely recommend Luis. He told me that he only does one Tesla at a time in order to keep the quality of his work high and keep the turn around fast (1 day).

    So it’s power coat not regular paint?

    Yup, rim were powder coated. He even painted the wheel caps the same gun metal color (I asked him to, I'm not sure he does it by default).
