Just an idea mulling around in my head. I'm thinking of getting a powder coat on the wheels of my 2017 Impreza Limited to a black gloss, resembling the accessory STI wheels (B3110FL250). Just curious if anyone has any info I should know before I proceed with having them done.

I've got a pic of my wheels below.. Let me know what you think!!

If I'm not mistaken, you'll have to remove each tire from the wheel to get them powdercoated. It would be one thing if you had a spare set of these without tires, but I don't think it would be worth the hassle and downtime to get them dismounted, powdercoated, mounted, and rebalanced.

When I had a motorcycle wheel powder coated, I think the guy said they baked the wheel too. They also bead blasted to remove all original finish. Definitely would want to remove the tires and the TPMS sensors.

So I did go ahead and get the factory wheels powder coated. I actually found a shop that does full service of removal, powder coating, re-balancing and re-installation all for a reasonable price.
