My SRT10-replicas arrived today. Im still undecided on what color I want to powdercoat them and wanted some opinions. The wheels are a gloss automotive paint as you can see below. And they are way too reflective for me. Now if anybody can verify, depending on the brand, satin/semi gloss are usually the same finish correct? I know I want a medium between the gloss finish that the SRT came in and a flat black. I just dont want them to look too dull or too glossy.So if anybody can post pics or anything of satin/semi-gloss black wheels on BLACK dodge rams id appreciate it.

Also wondering if anybody knows where to get some lugnuts with finishes other than black or chrome. Looking for a painted silver lugnut. Thanks!

The truck now...

I would keep them the way they are for now. It may grow on you with them being shiney. As for lugs, you might have to buy a set and have them powdercoated to the color you want.

BTW, are the wheels on there now the KMC Dimes??

nice wheels. I agree to give them a try, but if you are going for something that doesn't stand out too much, try and get them powedercoated the gunmetal like the nighrunners.

From what I have seen they can adjust the gloss level anywhere from flat to 100% glossy. I had my billet grille inserts done with 20% gloss black, and they ended up with a satin look. They usually have samples you can look at as well.
