So..while my car is in for some work...I decided to have the wheels powder coated. You will notice the car is on the lift. They had to remove the side skirts to get clearance so please ignore since it will be cleaned off and put back together.

I wanted to get the calipers done in red but they were unable to do so at the moment. The black on black look is good but I wanted something a little different so I chose this color. Tell me what you think, more pics when I have the car.

They look good. I like silver calipers against dark wheels. I thought I wanted yellow calipers until I mounted my HyperBlack wheels. I realized how good silver looks behind dark wheels.

Thanks! Ill see how it grows on me with the silver calipers. I plan on lowering the car soon as well to decrease the gap but debating on which springs still. I'm thinking of powder coating my W4M intake in the same color.

Not pictures of the wheels, but together I'm sure they're gonna set off. Here's a teaser pic :).When the car is done she's going to be leaving prints all over it :eek:

I've been contemplating doing this for a year with ZR1 blue, red or yellow calipers. I think if I did I'd do black raven and hit all the chrome trim pieces too except the crests. Last members car I saw with the black rims didn't look right to me in the pics so I'm on the fence.

Please post pics of wheels and handprints when available....

I'm confused by the color, Manny. Is it flat black, or a dark gunmetal? It looks great! Considering power coat for my wheels.

I think this is similar to what I have on my summer wheels, like a midnight silver, told him close to what the srt's have

in certain lighting it ALMOST looks like black chrome

mini_me looks great! agreed with silver caliper color. it looks nice, and im currently redoing mine to red, but if i had your wheel color i wouldnt bother with messing with it. a lot of work.
what tires are you runing? they look like a thinner profile.

Thanks, Rob. Looks very close. At first I thought maybe they were closer to the Graphite color.
