VX rims powdercoated....

Check out my newly powdercoated vx rims.. I got a pretty good deal from this place in East Hampton, CT called American powdercoating. The guy let me sandblast them myself, which took a while but save me some money. He charged me $30 a rim and no tax... I also put on Kumho 795 touring tires 155/80-13 I like them so far but haven't even run through a entire tank yet to see if I am getting any mpg improvements over my old 175/70 tires..
If any one has some center caps, Please let me know. Thanks Jesse

Those look slick!

I'd like to get mine powder coated. They're just sitting stripped at the moment.

How durable is powder coating ?

Nice! I borrowed a cheap sandblaster, and will try to do my new spare this weekend. Going the cheap route, & will paint it myself. If it's fugly, I'll get em powdercoated.

I prefer the 'alloy' look myself, but it looks like a great job! Powdercoating is the ay to go i think if you want it to last long.
Oh and I'd be in the market for one center cap myself since I am unfortuantely missing one...

If you really want one, Majestic Honda & San Leandro Honda have them in their online parts.

bugsih -

I like the blackout look. Your rims will never show brake dust, . I want to see a picture of your whole car to see the overall look.

UfoTofU -

When I powder-coated my racing disks oh-so-long-ago, they didn't scratch until they flew off my car (darn those evile harry potholes!). Since they weren't rims and they were pristine, I think it only cost me $20-$25 per disk.
