Powder coating stock wheels, pics?

Has anyone powder coated their stock wheels black. I've been thinking doing it, but want to see how it looks.

You can powdercoat the wheels but will have to paint the centers if they are not solid metal.

I have seen those same wheels coated gloss black and they look sharp. He coated the wheels and painted the caps. I will try to get some pics when I get home.

Okay, my memory sucks... Different wheels and hadn't painted the centers in this pic.

Where you located by the way? I have a spare set of wheels and tires and do my own powder coating.
