should i powder coat my stock rims black? I was thinking of doing this because I wanted to go for a pretty much all black look with my compass and since new rims would cost me a lot, power coating was the next best thing I could do

It can go either way. I used to think black rims made a ride look like it was just sporting steelies. Now the look has grown on me, and even steelies on the Compass can make it look a little more mean.

I didn't vote because I'm on the fence with the idea. Someone on here painted/powercoated the center of each spoke on his rims which gave it a cool look. You might consider that.

I think no.
(Self) painted rims could get more easily scrached and would look after that quite... cheap, if I may say so.
