I saw no need to shave weight or blow a solid grizzle on wheels for my car when the Rado stockers will do....Didn't want the ebony black that's so mid 2000's to murder some wheels out. So I went and powder coated my grey Rados a Gold Rubbed bronze by prismatic powders coating at a local vendor for $320...that's like 1 wheel from some vendors... .In person only really does them justice...but here are some pics....so next time you wanna get cray cray and buy some wheels think about powdering the stockers a color you think will look nice!


P.s. They glisten in the sun gold

See if you can get a mod to correct the title for you. I almost didn't look in here just because the title implies it's all about stickers, lol.

Love the gloss black. I remember when gold wheels were big in the 90s. But you know what they say, gold never gets old. Not my taste, but great work. [like]

Mine came with the black wheels but I would have preferred the rado grey wheels. The bronze is interesting. Would look good on a black car too. But u got a good deal on price. They wanted $800 to do all 4.

To powder coat them? if that's the case....its a complete ripoff! you could get brand new wheels for that price! I agree the Color would look good on a black vehicle....All my other cars except this one have been black....its a little easier to keep clean.[giggle]

Don't really have to spend a lot for some wheels unless you are really picky. I got mine used on craigslist for about 240 and I'm happy with them. Definitely an improvement over stock.

I'm going to get my factory wheels coated Mystic Gold From Prismatic powders. There's a powdercoating shop in Wisconsin that said they'll do it for $300 cash and no taxes.
