    Just Powder Coated My Wheels

    Recently purchased my 1st Cadillac. It's a 2012 CTS4 Premium and so far I'm loving it.
    This is my first post on the forum and I wanted to share my powder coated OEM 19s with everyone who might be considering this route.
    Not the greatest pics but I tried to replicate the satin graphite finish of the CTS-V wheels. So in real life they are a very dark gray with a hint of metallic flake to them. I also swapped out the silver center caps for OEM black units. I'm curious to hear what everyone thinks.

    Before. At the dealership:


    At the powder coater's deciding on the finish using an AMG sample


    After. Shot 1


    After. Shot 2


    After. Shot 3, crappy pic in the woods.

    It is Cole Gilmore. Good eye.
    May have been on Sprinkle my brother lives near there. I live in Chicago so it's not very often I'm in KaZoo.

    Pretty sure I saw this thing within the last month? If not there is one running same set up. Looks sweet though with those colors, nice work. Did you get the work done in Chicago? How much?

    It's possible. I was in town for about a couple of hours at the end of July.
    Wheels were finshed here in Chicago at a place called Wheel-Tech
    The price was around $160 per wheel and the new center caps were about $100 or so on ebay.

    Very nice. I applaud you for doing the powder coat instead Plasti-Dipping.
