Default Powder coating 08 gold bbs wheels to smoked hyper silver.

I would like to powder coat my 08 gold bbs rims to smoked hyper silver like the ones that come on the 10-14. Does anyone know exactly where I can get the color at because I'm having a tough time finding it.

you realize that the gold will sell for more than the hyper silver right? Sell your goldies and get a hyper silver set.

there isn't going to be a color code for it, the best you can do is match it.

Powdercoating forged wheels isn't a great idea, but as long as you find someone that will do low temp powdercoating they should probably be ok.

Why will the gold ones sell more?

Because they are less common and more desirable than just about any other color.

Agree. Those wheels are not painted silver. Post in the trade section, you should get some action.
If you did your profile someone could offer from here.
