    I know a lot of folks here on the forum have powdercoated their wheels, and the trend on new vehicles is blacked out wheels.
    Recent builds on TV (Wheeler Dealer, Truck Tech) have also blacked out the wheels to "Modernize" the trucks.

    I personally do not like the blacked out look and still like the original wheels in the original finish the best, but of course that's just me.

    Am I alone in that opinion?
    Has anyone who has done it to their wheels regretted it?

    I have the original wheels and love them also. Question, can powder coated black wheels be stripped back to the original polished wheels?

    I daily drive my truck so over the years I’ve refinished my wheels twice. The first time I had a little mishap with overpowering the rear tires while leaving a red light and turning... Sliding across an intersection onto the sidewalk really does a number on the wheels... That time I had them refinished/rebuilt in the factory finish. Currently my wheels are powder coated matte black. I will be honest and say at first I wasn't sure I had made a good decision but the look has grown on me and I’ve not met a single person that doesn’t like it. Aside from the RAM SRT 10 logo on the door, all of the other trim on the side of the truck is black. Once those were blacked out it really tied it all together to me.

    I had my NR wheels redone by Detroit wheel and tire they have a PVD coating system in 2014. They look much sharper on my 10 and the truck really stands out. i get alot of compliments and people asking if the truck is new. When I tell em the year, their mouth drop especially not knowing Dodge had a viper in a truck mode lol!!!!
