Should I powder coat or paint my 20" 214 wheels?

Any suggestions? Pros and cons on both?

I am going black maybe hyper silver like those Infiniti wheels......any other suggestions?

Can't go wrong with powder coat. Cost will be similar and it's a much tougher surface and will be more resistant to brake dust.

Powder Coating in a gloss or semi-gloss black would look awesome!

My vote: Hyper Silver, being from ny the black on black is really getting old n played out.. Instagram search "bmwe70" and you'll see a black x5 on snow with gunmetal color rim. Looks really tuff

Wow, I just did the search on IG like you said and you were right! That gunmetal look on black looks badass!
