take it from someone crowned the "king of bling".....black rims are cool BUT they don't make you faster and look like hell after you have used them for a few months..

Well, i had my rims anodized and it cost about 65$. And since i had takin everything apart myself i firgured why not have the hubs powdercoated while im waiting on the wheels so i had them done yamaha blue and they came out nice and it only cost me 75$ with a grand total of ~135$ and I got lucky and was able to use the same nipples and spokes, thank god they didnt seize or that would have been another 100$ or more, heres a pic, oh and by the way i laced and trued the wheels myself. its easy it just requires patience.:banghead:

do you guys think you could powdercoat the actual rims themselves. Powdercoat is really strong and would last a long time so it woudl be better than anodizing.

I have heard that the anodized parts tend to fade with the sun after a while. Powder coat doesnt.
