Fade to black...
I sense a chrome delete in your future?
What % tint is that?
Nice! Cost and vendor for powder coating? Looking to do the same.
I really don't get this black wheel fad. You took some nice looking wheels and made them look dirty, or absent looking. There is no more contrast between the tire and the wheel and all the nice geometric lines on the wheels are now gone. It looks like you parked your car in a bad neighborhood and had your wheels stolen and put on blocks. Can someone please explain why this is supposed to look good or is this just the cool thing to do even though it looks atrocious?
Well, everyone is unique. I know OP is not alone on this.
However, I agree with you. I love the chrome of Teslas and the shiny silver of the wheel. I am not into the dark contrast of the wheel to the light colors of the car.
It looked better in the original color. I don't like the window tint either.
Maybe because the OP doesn’t like the look of the original color. Just a guess....
Looks good! I'm also planning on powder coating my sport wheels to gloss white.
I see that you're in OC, can you recommend me a shop you did yours at and maybe pricing?
Powder black is definitely 'in'... That being said, the look looks similar on high end and low end wheels. In this case, the wheels are very well designed from asthetic perspective - they are stunning... And that characteristic was removed by the black powder look.
I’m thinking powder coating to a gun metal. That way, keeps the aethestics and also matches the MSM paint.
Black wheels is a big price premium from Tesla.
Also not an option on Model 3s.
I like them. Thinking of doing the same. Everyone is going to have an opinion...
Especially considering Model 3s are clones of each other except for exterior paint choices.
I am planning to do that with gun metal like Franz’s Car.
Never understood why that's an issue for some people tbh.
It's just a mass produced car. It's not exactly a house or something like that
But I guess as someone who doesn't even wash his car I'm a minority here: D
Funny. Tesla has options for black turbines, graphite arachnids etc. so by your opinion they must be atrocious designers?
It is silly to argue about preferences in how something looks, although I do wonder why OP did not choose the darker 18" wheels from the get go.

War chariot painted in the colors of his bannerman.
Ready to ride off to war one stoplight at a time against the Bavarian barbarians.
Because it looks like he went with the performance upgrade package. Which comes with the 20’s.
