    I just bought a set of some Hx rims with 2 good tires, and 2 fair tires(good ones were obviously rear tires). I paid $200 dollars, does this sound good, and how much do they usually go for.
    Also my car is Maroon or Burgandy, and is a little darker than this one.

    What color do you guys think the Hx's would look sicker in, Black with, or White.

    Good price. I would go with a gunmetal grey, but that's me.

    how much is it to powdercoat rims, or how difficult is it as a do-it-yourself project, if at all possible? i'm thinking of redoing mine. just trying to get some input on the best way to go when is comes to repainting rims... :blink:

    definately can't powder coat it yourself, but you can go to autozone and get some gunmetal colored paint :)

    Sure you can- there are do it yourself powder coat kits.... you just have to be really careful putting it on, and you bake it in your oven. I would still recommend a pro job though.
