Powdercoated stock wheels and hubs

I just powdercoated my stoock wheels and hubs. I went with a low gloss black on the stock wheels and super mirror red on the hubs. Let me know what you think. The stockers are going to have to do until I win the lottery and can afford to buy the OMF Wheels!!!

Thanks. I wasn't going to coat them until I needed new tires, but after I saw your black hubs, I felt compelled to go ahead with it. And I called about the price of the OMF wheels...about 1200 bucks for wheels!!! I figured I could make a change and keep what I have for now.

I own a powdercoating shop...so I just used some of the product I have here. But I would coat the wheels for about 40 or 50 a wheel. Hubs...as long as the owner disassembles the front bearing assembly 30 per. Of course unless the client wants a candy color or something else that may take a base or what not. I just prefer powdercoating as opposed to paint. Paint chips. Then it flakes. It's just better in my opinion.

I don't mind if anyone uses my colors or scheme. That just lets me know it looks good! It's a 4 wheeler though, there's only two plastic schemes, so the clor options are limited unless you want your bike to look like a happy meal toy!
