Purple FTW. I plan on doing that in the future but it makes more sense with the purple pearl I have. Right now I'm on goldie's. I might go magenta though.

ok guys, bump for update...

so i finally found some time to contact a local powdercoating shop to paint them all purple. Now... the quote was $400-500 to paint all 4 rims...

What do you all think? Good price or no? Yay or nay? I just need opinions on if YOU would pay that much for this?

that's pretty standard. sometimes if you can get a bunch of parts for a single coat color, they'll do a group rate for as low as 40-70 per rim.

however i've only ever seen that with shops that are just starting up and looking for an extreme way to get people in and start a work load. a busy shop is probably never going to go below 80 per rim.

Why pay a shop? It's not hard to paint wheels. Plus it would save you several hundred dollars and have less down time.
