even still get it powder coated the main color drk gray then paint on the silver part..

I had my 6 truck rallies powder coated. mine are white..
price wasn't bad 30 bucks a wheel to sandblast and coat..

many a vehicle is running around with repainted rims.. that the paint last just fine.. and they got a coat of argent silver/gray out of a spray bomb..
this sometimes is just fine for most "driver" cars.. as the trim ring is gonna screw up the paint anyways..
