    Changing Finish on My XRR's. Thoughts?

    Hey Gang,

    My '06 Guards Red/Black Cab has those great 19" XRR's. I love the look and extra width, but the red/black combo seems to dictate a brighter wheel finish IMO. The GT Silver finish looks a bit grey unless in bright light. My hope was to change the color to a more standard alloy silver or hyper silver via powdercoat (ala MB alloys). Anyone see an issue with doing so? Note that the center cap would have to be painted/changed as well.

    Thanks for your input!

    Don't mess with it! I think it would look great with Guards Red. Zee Germans know vat is best!

    Re: Changing Finish on My XRR's. Thoughts?

    I agree with Can L... you might end up runing some really expensive wheels... but if you must, I'd go with black... black wheels on Guards Red would be FANTASTIC!

    Re: Changing Finish on My XRR's. Thoughts?

    Anything can be done. Do what you want. My REQUIREMENT would be that it be done with no consideration for cost. You find the best process (coatings) and the best shop (hours and hours of preparation before any color is applied). Then you pay the price which is gonna be about three times the amount that would make the "average owner" siiiiiick.

    Of course you can do anyhting cheaply and there are tons of "specialty" shops that do cheap work for POS cars.
