    The S-Techs actually make the stockers look okay... I don't know if I could deal with the harsh ride though. I'm guessing you used flat black? Anymore pics?

    Yeah I've gotten tired of the harshness after a year and a half. I just replaced them with Epic springs from WorldOne. Much better

    Before with the Tein springs

    professional powdercoating

    if your thinking about doing this find a professional powdercoater first, get an estimate, for $40/wheel (so ive heard) it might not be a whole lot more than buying a couple dozen cans of decent spraypaint and doing it yourself....

    Joe, glad you ditched the S-Techs... I'm sure it's like night and day now. What size tire you running there? Looks pretty meaty on the 17x7's.

    $100 per wheel here in CO. Otherwise, I'd do it in a heartbeat. for $100 per wheel, I could almost get new wheels. I love the flat black look though, even though my spray paint hasn't held up worth two giggles.

    Any pics?



    And yea, I found a price cheaper than $100 per wheel. Powder-coating and metal fab shop will do em for roughly $60 per wheel. I just can't deal with the 1 week waiting time lol.
