They will definitely stand out at the track. I would try and get sponsorship from Pepto Bismol because it's the exact same color.

Make sure you keep an eye our for cracks in the spokes. It's been mentioned before. Powdercoating aluminum wheels can weaken them if not done properly. I've seen it happen first hand.

BTW, to each his own. I would never do that to my poor car.

Wow, gotta love the narrow mindedness mixed with the utter stupidity! all rolled into one useless question.

BTW not my choice in colors but I applaud the risk.
I'll take my penalty points now.

^^ What he said. Power coating can aneal the metal esp aluminum since its a lower melting point. This makes it softer and weaker. Street wheels it might be OK, race wheels and you are playing with fire.

hmm. I dont want to be a hater. But I could paint my car or wheels puke green and call it "creative". Doesnt mean it will look good....or even remotely good. I am sorry but that neon pinkish purple color in no sense of reality matches a silver car.

they are unique though, I guess that means more to some than looks??

i finally found something that matches the color that anyone will be able to reference.

look at a hershey kiss dark chocolate (purple foil wrapper), now imagine that color in glossy not metalic.

these pics were taken with a 2/yo $70.00 digi cam <junk cam
