powdercoat stock wheels

Hello all,
Wanted to get some wheels for my molten orange FiST, but coming from a s2000 its shocking how little options we have in regards to wheels. I feel the only way to get a good fit, and unique look is probably going custom wheels (looking at fifteen52). But can't justify the price on those wheels with a FiST.

So i've decided to stick with OEM wheels for the next year or two and just powdercoat them over the winter season. I'm just having a real hard time trying to find a rim color that suits the molten orange!

i saw this photoshop of a green envy st and actually liked it

wondering what thoughts you guys have on what color powdercoating (solid of even two colors like the above pic) would look nice on a molten orange.

Well, you might want to give plasti-dip a shot, you could try several shades before you spend enough to pay for powder coating (unless you've got the powder coating gear at your disposal).

Color is a personal preference but some things clash.

Just off the top of my head, a really dark blueberry color might go well but I usually go conservative so something in the black-gray range would probably be my choice.
A tire wouldn't survive a powder coating oven. You have to mount tires after coating.

I would not expect plastidip to survive tire mounting but I could be wrong. On the other hand, the best way is to get tires mounted, then plastidip. No oven required and no chance of mounting damage that way.
