Looks really good.
I saw another Impala that looks like yours with powder coated rims at a truck stop in Amarillo TX the other day. Guessing it wasnt you though! No one drives through here, lol.

Legit powder coating >>> plasti-dip

Those wheels look fantastic. Great choice.

Agree. As many have found out it doesn't hold up too well. At all.

Powdercoating as seen here looks much better anyways. Cool

How much did that run you per rim? I was going to do mine awhile ago but it would have been the same price to just buy new rims.

That is a sharp looking SS; hint of chrome around windows coordinate with the chrome lugs. I bet she shines deep up close!

Those rims look phenomenol!!!!!! And I agree ^^^.

I have Plastdip on my 16" LT alloy winter rims and they look good (better than stock). But if I were to do it on my good SS rims, I would powdercoat for sure. More durable and looks 1000X better. Plastidip serves a purpose though for me. Mainly, cheap and easy. I have not had any durability issues....yet.

Normally, I am not a fan of Black rims..
But those look Excellent on that Black SS ride.
Well Done.

Some one else asked about cost if you don't mind.
