has anyone here powder coated their 601 wheels?

has anyone here powder-coated their 601 wheels and came out nicely?

I have some curb rashes that I was thinking about taking care of and might as well maybe give it a change to the look. I have SMB and I think only the bright colors will look good on the color but was curious to see if anyone can share powdered coated 601 wheels to see how it looks. I've seen some people going with black and I do not like it.

I have powder coated my 601s black on a black sapphire metallic GC. Check google pictures and see if you find a SMB with coated rims. Colors are always a very personal thing.

Thanks for the picture and your comment! I hope I did not offend you by saying I do not like black powdered coated ones lol

I just like to have color contrast in general, hope more pictures from others to follow

The answer was provided to your question about powder coating 601s. It is obvious from your narrative that you do not like black but go for bright colors. I have seen very few 601s in bright powder coating.
No offense taken. To each his own when it comes to esthetic.

I dont like black wheels either. Barely can see the wheel design on over half of them. This was good example of the same car having the same wheels providing a totally different look! The pop on that gold is an attention getter and will snap necks EVERYWHERE you go! Then again some prefer not to have any attention and like to hide their brake dust.
