I read somewhere a while ago that you shouldn't powder coat wheels because if they crack it won't show. I think it was some track rule or something that they would not allow people to run powder coated wheels. Not sure how true that is though, I just remember reading it.

Plus PCing is expensive and heavy. Rattle can and clear, otherwise flat black is baller on slips.

I used rustoleum on the bronze wheels and it was OK. The duplicolor high temp engine paint is the best though. That stuff goes on super thick, and looks great. Be sure to spray very thin coats.

Ah thanks. I just looked it up, hopefully he decides to make more lips in the future

But yeah I had slipstreams on my Prelude, awesome rims for an affordable price. Pretty light as well.

Krylon flat black + krylon gloss black actually look really nice, and hold up to the outdoor weather really well

That's a hot car. I originally glanced over Slipstreams in my wheel search but you have changed my opinion on them and Miatas.
