    I am looking for a good shop that will powdercoat the stock 20" wheels on my X. Anyone know of a good place in Central NJ that has worked with Tesla's before?

    Also, considering the T sportline 20" Turbines, could anyone recommend a shop to swap them out as an alternative? Thanks!

    It's a bit of a drive, but this place is awesome. They repaired and repainted four 21" turbines for me for $225 each. Super professional.

    They have some YouTube videos, too.

    Plastidipped mine myself for $60, Looks great. May need to do some touch ups in three years though.

    I plasti-dipped mine, but there's a place that looks decent in Newark called GT Wheels - GT Wheels Inc.

    Haven't used them but heard very good things about Crimson Wheel Repair & Powder Coating in Edison. May be worth a drive over there to inquire.

    Was really easy.

    Supplies from DipYourCar - World Famous Peelable Auto Paint You definitely need a spray can grip. They sell one or you may find a cheaper one at your local hardware store.

    Do you have pics of your wheels? How do you get the inside of the wheel?

    You don't. Just paint the outside surface of it. It doesn't make a difference.

    Don't really have access to my car atm. So can't take pics.

    Any experience peeling it off? How hard is it to go back to the stock color?

    Peeing off the dip is easy. Comes off with wd40 like melting butter. Or you can just rub and peel. Plasti dip is like magic.

    Nice! I dipped my spare i3 wheels to test it out and was super easy. Happy how those came out. However, Decided with the X to get them powdercoated. Love the look and very happy with the results.
