I just finished my wheel project. First I bought an extra set of OEM Speedlines, then my local paint guy sand blasted them, powder coated them with a 2-layer black/metallic custom color. Finally, he sent them to a local wheel shop that turned them on a machine to remove the powder from the lips. This way I got a perfect line and they look OEM. The results are stunning up close so I had to post some pics. If anyone is thinking of doing something similar, PM me. There is a vast array of custom powder coats available. This was an economical upgrade and maintains the OEM lightweight wheel/tire setup. I'll now sell my original wheels since I bought the second set only to keep the car on the road and as an insurance policy. :cheers:
