just my 2 cents...
I was gonna leave a red stip or a red lip but my rims have those real stuipd steped lips so I couldnt do it good and a red stripe would make them look too much like those cragars or whatever they are that you see at pepboys.

I dont really know that average price beacuse I havent checked in awhile but I could do them real cheap. The only hard part about it is stripping them down to bare metal, if you brought the wheels already stripped to a shop I think it would be alot cheaper. Also yes they make a clear powder coat, they make powdercoat in almost any color you want from glow in the dark to chrome.

Because chrome cheels are cool on a truck that has no chrome to match them and if it does then its chrome painted plastic.
