    what color/style to powdercoat?

    Looking to powdercoat my rims since the chrome is flaking off and is somewhat faded. Just not sure what color and style to go with. I know powdercoating gives you a wide variety of options so I was just looking for opinions. I have a red Trans Am with these LG Motorsports World Challenge Rims. They look like this just not as nice.

    Typically I am not a fan of black wheels, and it would be helpful to see pictures of your car as well, but black chrome powdercoating looks fantastic.

    Red + Black powder coat rim looks great to me. I would suggest doing that. But if you want other color painting is more useful since you have more variety.

    Black Chrome for sure. If it were me thats the way I would go. Only problem with black chrome (in your case) is that it requires a perfect base coat. If your chrome is jacked up the coater will need to put down a chrome powder base coat and the black chrome top coat. In this case it wont be as shiney as over real chrome and look a little darker, more like a gunmetal color.
