Default Powdercoating OEM 2012 WRX rims hyperblack

So I was going to get some aftermarket rims for next year, but I'm now thinking about getting my stock ones powdercoated. Has anyone ever seen someone do the stock 11-12 rims in a hyper black? I think it would look sick, and the only colors I've ever seen done on an 11 or 12 are gold, black, and white. My car is CGM and I like the looks of the stock rims, but I just want them to be a little different.

It's only like 250 to powdercoat them. Plastidip doesn't look great to me and they are limited in colors.
