Default Changing wheel colour

Has anyone changed the wheel colour from the matt black to gloss black or any other colour? I am thinking about maybe getting mine powder coated in gloss black or maybe even white this winter.....any pics would be great as I could really do with seeing the colour on the bike ( black/ white pearl)

I dunno about powder coating them Clint................I think it looks a bit thick and 'Gloopy' for wheels, personally I'd get em sprayed.

Definitely go for paint...you'll like the results better. Plus, you can do some very cool things....like the new KTM Super Duke Racing paint.
