    Default Wheels... do I or dont I?

    I was going to get my standard sri alloys powdercoated next month in gunmetal, most quotes are around £300. I just seen the following alloys on eBay for sale 18" need 3 new tyres but currently at £150, plus he lives nearby.

    Help me decide please

    get yours done at city powdercoaters in birmingham, they only charge £20.00 per wheel stripped or £30.00 with tyres on at the min, even if you get em couried there and back it will still be cheaper than £300.00, just had mine done by them and they have done a cracking job

    Everyone's got there own personal tastes, so it's your choice.

    So being as you asked what to do, if you must powder coat yours.

    BTW those ebay wheels look
