You know what...honestly...save your money.

It probably won't make much of a difference with those mesh type wheels, colour difference that is...you won't be able to notice it much.

But if you just have to, I'd say go with the gold or white even since you'll be putting them on your sister's black Legacy.

If you must paint them, go gold. Gold on a black car looks fantastic!

the reason i want powdercoat them is because earlier this summer when i was in edmonton i crashed into the curb going around 10km/h head on. no damage to my car rims no damage but a scrach. i was surprised for how strong they were for how much they costed. i though i would have shattered it for sure. but anyways some of the clearcoat is scrached off on one of the rims. thats why i want to powdercoat these rims. still don't know. need to decide on a color first. pink??? haha. sti pink...
