Custom Jline 18"s powdercoat reccomendations!

Hey, i have a set of Jline custom 18"rims. They are silver star shape and have a 1.5" lip in front and 3" in back. The lips are chrome but have curb rash on them. Below is a picture of the wheels and my car. What would color/combo would you do when refinishing the rims?

Thanks guy!

If you aren't using them, sell them. If you want to keep them, clean them up and make a couple side tables with some 24-30" diameter glass.

Are you talking about what to refinish them to? I've always been a fan of the way black chrome looks.

Black chrome plating, like this.



It's very reflective but darker than regular chrome. Contrasts a polished or chrome lip nicely.

If possible, that would look nice in my opinion. Totally up to you though, as they are your wheels.
