Question Need Help. Powder Coating Stock Wheels and Resale Value.

Think powder coating the stock GT500 wheels would have any negative effect on the value of the car later?

I did not think it would in any way but I want to make sure before I decide on doing it.

Thanks!

I did exactly that before making the decision to have mine powdercoated...Plastidip did not hold up that well for me, and it turns a brownish purple because of the brake dust. Tried washing them, but that was a no go. Just get em powdercoated. Mine were $100/wheel and came out nice I think.

so long as you do a neutral color that is well liked by most (greys, silvers, gunmetals, hyperblack, black, bronze etc), it will not really negatively influence the value of the wheels. I wouldn't expect it to increase it any, either. this is a personal preference choice.

if you pick something wild like neon green or something more niche.. it could lower the value of it slightly, as people will see that as an increased cost they have to incur to fix it. that doesn't mean the right buyer wouldn't mind paying the same price for them, but a lot of others may think they will need to invest a couple thousand to replace them or a few hundred to repaint/powdercoat them.
