    why not just sell your silver set and buy a grey set? i see them come up quite often

    besides, if you're going to spend the extra money to powder coat them, id gather do a different color instead

    Because people know they are NLA. They are selling on Ebay for $5-6K. Strip / powder-coat will only cost $100 per wheel

    I would recommend against choosing a color via digital reference. Screens are not calibrated to reflect reality 100%. Best to see their actual catalog in person (usually has a gloss/matte finish per swatch) since the finishes will also make the color vary.

    Powdercoated mine now..... very happy with the quality of the work and also with the shinyness of the powdercoated wheels....but I am not satisfied with the too light color they used. I would have wished them a little darker...but well....it's now done and there is no return. Hopefully I will get used to it.

    What do you guys think?
