I've pondered about this for a while. I've wanted to powdercoat or paint my 7th gen wheels black and keep the center cap chrome. Have any of you guys done this? I don't want my rims to end up turning brown because the black doesn't hold up. Any recommendations? Anybody have pictures?

In addition to doing this, I am also considering maybe painting a red trim at the edge of the wheel to match the car's body. Photochop anyone?

No centercaps in these pics but I later put them on and they looked good. These wheels have since been stolen, so I guess somebody else liked them too!

Evilspeeder: Was that using a spray can????? They look awesome. What paint did you use? I'm thinking of making the part that you left chrome red like my car but maybe like 3/4 of a cm thick.
