On my 2015 Accord coupe I have a set of 20 inch Konig rotary forged wheels that I just had powder coated Bronze Chrome with matte clear. Personally I love it. It's just enough to be different with out being gaudy and I hate black wheels.

This is a pic the shop sent me before I picked up the wheels.

This is in the bright morning sun. Notice how the color changes a little bit in the bright light.

Let me know what you think. I do understand that everyone has an opinion and that a lot of people here don't care for larger wheels. That's fine in all but, keep it tame. smile

How much was the powder coating?

When I checked, the powder coating was the same cost as a reman wheel?

@ Donald

$600 with warranty. I wanted to do a color change and this route was less then half the cost of a new set of wheels.

I actually have a spare wheel, and the shop does in house tire mount and balance.

Dismount tires
straighten and repair bent, cracked, or curb rashed wheels included if needed
Strip and powder coat
mount and balance tires

4 tires and 5 wheels was brought to the shop for a job that cost me $600

Some one mentioned the calipers. Actually not red but I completely took them apart and had the calipers powder coated Illusion Copper.

Stock wheels and Michelin tires for the winter months. I'll run these 20's right up to the first threat of ice or snow.

Looks good. I used to have nice wheels but the last 40k miles I rashed up all of them. frown
