I wouldnt go from top of the line quality Excel rims to black cheap rims. Doesnt make sense to me.

Powdercoat would be your cheapest route. Other than that, the second generation of pro wheel rims seem to be good, I've had a couple sets and beat the crap out of them withoutm any issues. The first generation of pro wheels had some issues with cracking though.

Send them to TCR wheels in Lodi, CA. For $150 (un-laced) or $250 (complete),they will anodize your rims black and the result will look EXACTLY like Excels. The $250 includes: break down of your wheels, anodizing, re-assembly, and truing. Check them out. They are featured in almost every MX magazine out there. They also have a sweet racer package for $500.
