I know that no one has been a fan of me powder coating my wheels, but I took them to the powder coater today and he had a spray out sample of the layered powder coat and it is amazing! The base is a very bright, highly metalic silver and then he sprayed two top coats of metal flake blue/purple/teal topped with a high quality wheel clear and the effect is so cool. In the sun it sparkles but not ghetto at all. In regular light it gives a blue hue. I know my camera will never catch the subtle tones but everyone that has seen it says it is a bigger WOW factor than Chrome and that is is very elegant and feminine! I am so excited to see them on the bike. It will be different than anyone else for sure. It will be Thursday or Friday before I get them back...you KNOW how patient I am. LOL! Just had to tell someone!
