    Painting Sport Wheels Black

    My dealer said the factory would not do the Sport Design wheels in black. So I actually have to get them done locally (I am in LA) after I get the car. Has anyone had any experience with painting/powder coating their wheels? Anything I should look out for? Or any recommendations for a place to go?

    Thanks!

    your dealer is lying...

    Re: Painting Sport Wheels Black

    So you can order them black from the factory? Why in the world would they lie about something like that. I put my order in like 4 months ago.

    Re: Painting Sport Wheels Black

    I'd suggest painting the inside of the wheel too. Call another dealer to verify the info your dealer told you.

    keep us posted, khansdad~~


    i'm quite interested in a similar process!



    Re: Painting Sport Wheels Black

    Will keep you guys posted. Car is arriving in SD on tuesday, so should take a week to get to the dealer. Plan to get the wheels painted in mid september when I am out of town for a week.

    Re: Painting Sport Wheels Black

    I'd be verrrry careful whom you picked to powder coat them (or paint them). It's easy to throw some paint on anything and have it look good but ONLY for a while. The PREP work is 95% of the job to do it right. So when you pay less, you're probably getting screwed on the prep work. Ask to see samples and references. and word of mouth (ask around at other hot car dealerships).
