No paint code. Satin finish was powdercoated. Any competent powdercoating company can replicate this.

All the best

No negatives whatsoever. Theoretically, truck should handle better but Im sure my wife doesnt push it to that limit and when I drive it, the kids are usually in the truck so I wouldnt have noticed a difference but it sure looks damn good.

Hey man, those wheels look great! Powder coating is always the way to go!

I was eye balling a set of those tires for my Lake Tahoe trips, but I kinda wanted to get them with a set of winter wheels too. Do you by chance know if the 2007 X5 wheels would mount on our 2013? The wheels and tires are going for $800 with 5000 miles (19 inch wheels).

Thanks and sorry to hi jack the thread but you sound like you have more experience in this than I!
