Trade black wheels for Gold - N. GA

Looking to change things up a bit.

I have a 2014 white with less than 1000mi.

Looking to see if anyone has some low mileage gold wheels in excellent shape that they are willing to trade. My wheels are black with the white stripe around the rim.

Wheels only, no rotors.

Thanks!

Re: Trade black wheels for Gold - N. GA

Honestly, if I were you, I would just powder coat the ones you have. It's what I did on my '08 and only cost me $165.

If you do decide to powder coat them LEAVE THE NEEDLE BEARING IN THE REAR WHEEL. The needle bearing will make it through powder coat and then all you have to do is grease it.

All you will need to do is pull the other bearings and depending on your call, replace them or reuse them. I replaced all of mine because I had them on hand already, but if you can pull them with out putting too much stress on the races, you can reuse them...but that's your call. I know guys say not to but...

I've got a 2014 with ~3200 miles (Matte Grey w/Gold Rims). They are not the '09 Raven Gold, so some people don't like them. I'm in Ft Worth, TX. Let me know if interested.
