Any Yas owners paint stock 437m wheels black?

Iím considering painting satin black like these.



Anyone done this or gloss black before?

Yes I have


It's a major improvement over stock silver or gloss black in my opinion.

No mate. Painted by a shop. These were actually powder coated.

The only time you should be spraying wheels is if they are mega fucked up and you are selling the car, or spraying are them with something like raptor (which is more a 4x4 scene thing).

Painting will kill the value.

I'd sell mine first and buy a set on classifieds people cannot get rid of as they painted them.

Thanks for the responses guys. I'm going to mull over the idea of gloss black vs satin black vs leave them stock.

I don't know man, the 437M doesn't exactly fetch high resales. I don't like my 437M so I painted them fully gloss black and use them for my snow tires. Looks much better to me. Normally I am on my 666M wheels. Let me look for some pictures.
