make sure the edge won't chip. A good powder coat should hold up. Must match the rest of the mods.

Is that the "Hyperblack" paint that I've heard about? Or is it called "Black Chrome"? If you did it yourself, was it hard to do?

Im related to the person who did the actual painting. I used Centari Highgloss Black paint. Nothing Special. However i did spend about 3 hours on each wheel with wet sandpaper.

Looks good The Problem is the paint most likely won't hold up. I have a set of American Racing wheels that they clear coated. after 2 winters about half the clear coat was gone. The salt and crap they put on the roads around here really does a number on painted wheels.
