Default Powder Coated Wheels



Just received 4 powder coated OEM wheels from vendor and I installed stripe kit!
Stripes match my red brake calipers. I’m awaiting new set of Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ ZP tires.

Nice job installing the pinstripe. The wheels will look good on your car.

I paid $ 90.00 a piece to have the silver wheels off my Z-51 done in gloss black. The finish was outstanding.

I had four wheels and the lug nuts done for $500. Not sure I'd recommend getting the lug nuts done, as they chipped pretty quickly after installation.

I like the look of the red stripe on the black wheels and have purchased the Tapeworks kit but haven't had time to install yet. I think it will complement the red calipers I have just fine. Yours look great and look pretty easy to put on before the tires are installed.

Either with or without tires, itís simple to do with the tool. If you have rims like mine you will need 3 #8 washers to use as spacers if you use the outside rim guide.
