    They are not powder coated. He painted them himself.

    I've seen a set in white but I can't find the picture right now.
    I really like the look of them in gold or white, but I'm obsessed with flashy/bright wheel colors.

    Not snowflakes, but I painted my Impreza's wheels Duplicolor Gold. This is with no clear coat, I plan to add clear coat on them in the near future.





    It's a good color, I'd paint snowflakes with it in a heartbeat.
