403M rims in two-tone

Hey anyone have photos of ever see 403's with the inside of the rims in black? I'm going to have my rims refinished over the winter and I'm looking to either go dark grey or black on the inside.

My accessory guy suggested this exact paint scheme 4+ years ago. Suggested BSM in Powder Coat to match car paint.

Sure it’s posted on forum somewhere.

I never proceeded though. Eventually purchased 437m.

POWDER COAT!

Those look pretty ace. What color vehicle would they be going on?

I'd probably try to color match, personally, but I'm sure the black would still look nice.

$900 was my quote at a top tier shop that does high end cars like Ferraris etc.

Probably $700 at great shops that one might know locally.

Less than that begins to get questionable.

Yeah it'll vary, up here in the GTA (Canada) there's a reputable shop called Carcones that specializes in rim refinishing. They charge about $150/ wheel. I've used them several times - top quality work.

ferric gray with machined face would look great. gloss black would hide brake dust more though.

Yeah the Ferric grey is my option 1, option 2 is to go black for that reason exactly - brake dust. Black would also tie the lower half of the car better too I feel.

I just haven't decided which ones the one!

Photos would help but it doesn't look like anyone has references.

Gloss black doesn't help hide brake dust. Feel free to ask me about the pain of owning powdercoated black gloss 403m wheels.

Ok scratch "gloss" black. How about I powdercoat them "brake dust" black instead!

I seriously thought going to a gloss black on the inner returns of the rims would be better than a lighter gray in general. I think it's a different story when the entire rim is gloss black no?

Ferric grey or anthracite hides it the best in my opinion.

You can get your wheels ceramic coated after powercoating to drastically reduce brake dust accumulation on wheels. I will most likely be going this route in a month or so.
