need info Painting Rims

whats going on fam. I will keep this short and simple. I have a silver cbr 900. and right now it has the orginial white rims.(fireblade) what i wanna do is paint them a flat black. I was thinking of doing them my self just because im a DIY guy. but it seems like it might not be as easy as i thought.

so my question is, does anyone know any shops around that will paint motorcycle wheels flat black. and if so how much? like i said i would love to paint them myself but not sure which route to take if i was gonna do them myself. so if you got any advice or info. please do tell.

yup, paint will flake eventually. I do show quality powder and can hook you up flat black for 80 each wheel.
Take a few minutes to browse my pictures in my sponsors section to get some ideas.
heres a photo to show the flat black

Painting it flat black would be easy to do, and a professional painter would be happy to do the work for you.

Now for the down sides:

Paint is not as durable
Paint is expensive

Now for the good news:

Powder coating is a LOT more durable
Powder coating costs less than painting
Scootertrash is a site sponsor, and he'll do a fantastic job powder coating your wheels, with a TON of colors to choose from
