Hey guys
I have a 2011 GTI with the stock rims and I do not have enough money to buy new rims so I am looking to paint them. I want to give my GTI a different look than stock. I want a shop to paint them to have it look as nice as possible. Anyone know how much it would cost to have a shop paint all 4? Anyone have any pictures of their rims painted?

not sure how much it costs to have a wheel profesionally painted but it would probably be close to the price to have them powdercoated and they wont chip and scratch as easy.
unles you find a oven on craigslist and do it yourself 1 rim at a time :)

i read your signature.... please dont ruin your car with altezza tails :(
i have to see how they look on the car... they're not the civic style with silver, clear or whatever backgrounds, they're just gray and black backgrounds... and they are cheaper than buying another stock set so if i want to smoke them i can and still have a second stock pair if i need them... haha, had this thought through before i got them. thanks though, muchly appreciated!
