Powdercoated my rims

I got bored so I decided to powdercoat my rims at work today. My rims were already black and I see about 20 rangers with black rims everyday so I decided to do them red, and I just wanted to see something different.

My buddy did that to his old red Nissan truck........thing looked like a fore truck. Really not my cup of tea, but hey, "to each their own".

Should have painted them that smoke grey colour.

I was gonna do them another color but I would have had to order the powdercoat and I didnt feel like waiting. I think im gonna buy a billet grill and powdercoat it black but put some sort of red logo on it. Also I want to do something else red on the truck so if you have any ideas other than pin stripes(I just took mine off), and the emblems beacuse im buying new fenders and taking all them off anyways.

I think they would look better if you left them black and have only a small strip (the lip) on red,

just my 2 cents...

i like it with the black truck.....

what normally does it cost someone off the street to have their wheels powder coated? I wouldn't mind having my DC-1's powder coated....can you get clear powder coat?
