Color/Finish: Gloss Black
Size: 20" Sports Wheels
Cost: $80 per wheel
Location: Louisiana


When I hear powder coat I think shiny glossy black. Looks amazing. This is what I wanted but the guy that did mine simply painted them gloss black. Doesn't have the deep shiny glossy look.


80$ per wheel? A guy on craigslist wanted $500 for a set of 19's already powder coated gloss black and I'd also give up my rims! Rip off


Too bad I'm in ~LA or I'd go to the place that did yours

You’re right on. Only bad part is when you get a curb rash holy is it noticeable. I got mine done glossy black and I have some regrets. When it’s wet or freshly washed it’s glossy and looks beautiful. As soon as I drive it a bit the dirt just masks the wheel and makes it look like a cheap matte black plasti dip. Can anyone here comment about their experience with glossy black or did I just get a shitty powder coat job done? Thanks

Ceramic coat your rims. It'll always look fresh! Gyeon Rim ceramic coating.

Having mine done on Monday. MS black car. Having wheels done in gloss black with silver shade shifting "bling" in the clear coat.

Helps that I used to own the wheel repair shop before I sold it and retired. Getting great deal...free.

Just had my wheels done today. :) It’s nearly impossible to capture the true color of the wheels in a photo but this first pic is the best example I have. It’s a really nice dark grey with a bit of pop to it (better looking than the Performance Grey 20” color IMO; the Performance seem a bit dull in comparison).

Color/Finish: Satin (Gunmetal) Grey
Size: 19" Sports Wheels
Cost: $500 all in
Location: Garden Grove in Socal
Shop: JRWheel

Another happy customer from JRWheel here! Luis is the owner and people don’t get any kinder than this man. If you live within an hour, or two, of this shop, don’t bother calling around. Schedule an appointment now. You’ll be very happy you did.

Car is looking amazing! I’m just now getting a chrome delete on my MSM and want to powder coat the wheels same color as yours. I have a SR+ but my wheel gap seems a lot bigger.. did you have it dropped and if so how much? How’s the ride compared to before? Your car looks

I’m thinking about it. I actually saw the RPM Tesla guy have metallic white on his 19’ sport wheels. Looks interesting, kinda tempted with my multi-coat red.

Stone Black (kinda semi-gloss)
$150 CAD per wheel
Ottawa, Canada.

I still need to ceramic coat them. They get a bit dirty in the rain. The guy at the shop didn’t recommend full-on gloss black since they tend to get scratches after a while. My winter rims are 18” gloss black and they aren’t easy to keep looking clean in the snow.

Winter rims: bought on eBay (before I actually had the car.) I think I like the stone black better. Definitely like the 19”rims better.
