    Looking for some 19s that match the MSM color. I see a couple good options

    1. Get the 19” sport wheels and have them powder coated to match the colors
    2. Buy TSportline Turbines in the Metlalic Gray color

    Anyone have experience with powder coating wheels? Are they more or less durable than the gray TSTs? I live in Chicago and can hit a curb or two sometimes!

    Any other opinions?

    I prefer the look of the Factory Sport 19s over the turbines, but really want that matching look!

    i'm in the same boat, i'm leaning toward powder coating. TST 19" are 4 lb heavier than Sport 19" (each wheel), i'm not a big fan of heavy wheels.
