Just ordered EX trim Ebony Black with Black interior, Anyone powder coated the stock rims? If so, do you recommend Black in a gloss finish?

I just got back from investigating powder coating my EX rims. It's a bit more cost effective, my quote was $125/wheel plus fee for removal and re-installation of tires.. so $150 x 4 basically. The problem however is, they needed my car for 3 days! We only have 1 vehicle (Telly) so the time it would take to get this done was not worth it (rental car, tax, etc). SO, now I am investigating new wheels that will fit the stock18" tires. Good luck!

I am getting my S trim rims powdercoated Monday. I will post the pics then.

That's funny. Reading your post, I put it off for the exact same reasons, but now with the schools shut down and not needing to use both cars, I can give it up for a few days. Been waiting for a couple months to do this, now seems to be the time.

These are 20 inch factory powder coated rims. On S trim level
Loving those rims. I’ve got a pearl white EX. Are your rims the same as these factory ones on mine? Can’t quite tell. I’m looking to do something similar to yours. Looks sweet!

Thank you! Are you happy with having yours powder coated and would you do it again? They look great.
