Powdercoated Wheels?

Do you think my TJ looks better with matte black powdercoated rims?
I'm thinking of that for some days now and I'm not really sure.

I like it. How does it hold up to your style of wheeling? I would be afraid of doing that here - you should see the rock rash on my wheels! If I would have gone the black steelies route that I wanted to, I would now have Silver and Black steelies!

The guy at the powder coating shop told me that it will hold up better than the stock paint on the wheels.
There will be a 2-year warranty.

I vote black - and while you have the tires off, turn them around!

Black looks good, but IMO the Alum looks better. I like the contrast with the Alum rims.
