Post some pictures of your truck so we can get a better idea. What color would you get the wheels powder coated?

It would look good with black rims and it will look good the way they are. No need to thank me. Helping out is it's own reward.

Oh, and matte black like teflon or glossy black? what's your preference?

I didn't think of that. Probably glossy. i didn't realize with powder coating you could choose. thanks for your noncommittal opinion.

My vote is to paint them black but leave the lip like the Alcoas that come pre-painted DSG.

^^^nice......i like it. But really by the time i pay to have them powder coated i can buy four steel pro comps for 230, with a back spacing i will like more, and still have the alcoas to sell or just hang on to. thanks for the visual.....i may have found my new screen saver
