depending on where you're located powdercoating your factory 17"s is a great option. i know a guy that had his jk done all five wheels for 250 dollars

Hey Venom, I know we live pretty close but I am going to have to do my rims like yours. :thefinger: My jk is solid black and I think it will look pretty cool! I am in a different town so maybe won't be that bad. So is there a good powder coating place in Abilene because there is not one here in Brownwood?

I painted my AEV Bridger Wheels. Here are some photographs.


Flat Black Paint


Semi-Gloss Black Paint -- this is what I ended up using.


Here they are dirty!

My take on paint vs powder coat. I have yet to hear someone say those look like you spray painted them. Plus touch up is easy and Jeep wheels get rock rash.

yup, no powder coat for me
I like being able to grab a rattlecan off the shelf and pfft pfft away scratches and rock rash, or at least I will when something finally happens - no damage at all yet :grinpimp:
Plus I'm a hardcore do it yourselfer - the ONLY thing that has been done on my rig by someone other than me was the gears.
Oh yeah, and I'm usually broke, elbow grease I got - extra cash, not so much :thefinger:

Nice thing about the bedliner is it's a textured finish.
So touchups - even over scrapes and small gouges, should pretty much disappear.

I LOVE the black wheel look! Alas, I don't know if I can pull it off. Rescue Green w/ a tan hardtop... I feel I would be working with an odd color combination. Any thoughts and/or rebels who have done this?
