I had mine powder coated gloss, they look great, but are a pain in the ass to keep clean. No issues whatso ever. I paid about $100 per wheel. There was a 24 hour turn around time. I bought a second set of OEM wheels with winter tires on them and had them powder coated satin black, it's a semi gloss.

I was thinking of doing the same thing. Two of mine had several chips before I even hit 1,000 miles. The coating must be very thin, and I am not too happy with the quality for the price. We have powder coated SRT (car) wheels in the past for customers so was considering that for mine. Since my Jeep is silver the stock wheels look cool, but I can't stand them being imperfect already.

You could powder coat them silver or any other color if you prefer?

I've been thinking about doing mine. Just can't decide what color. One day it's black other days its silver or a gunmetal.
