Default Powder Coat my Sport Rims?

I am not a big fan of the polished aluminum parts on the sport rims that came with my 2020 Z.
I like the blacked out look!
They look quite nice up close. But from a distance they look cheap!
Not sure what the cost of stripping and powder coating would be. I figure, if it is $200 or less per tire, it may be worth it. Pretty impossible to find nice rims for $200 each!

I blacked out the sport rims in MS Paint just for fun. I think it just might look pretty good!

What do you guys think?

I am not a fan of those rims period. Spend that money on new rims.

Actually I agree... I'm not digging those rims much. I would, however, love to black powder coat my 15's Sport wheels.

Wasn't there just a thread about not being able to powder coat sport wheels due to the material they're made of?
