Unfortunately I cannot help in that regard, they came painted when I purchased the CSX. They are painted and not powder coated.

It's easier than you might think to successfully paint these wheels. I have a thread here: Here You Go Chas. - The Finest Fluoroelastomer It's several pages in to that eight page thread, but if you follow the directions I used you will love the result.

Here are the steps:
- Wash Thoroughly with a detergent such as Simple Green
- Degrease with DupliColor PS100 Prep Spray
- Scuff w/ Red 3M Scotchbrite Pads
- Degrease with DupliColor PS100 Prep Spray
- Rinse with water while using Scotchbrite Pads
- Tape off the wheel with 3m Blue Edge Lock Tape
- Apply 2 light coats of DupliColor CP199 Adhesion Promoter
- Apply 3 coats of DupliColor your favorite color here

Thank you,
I am looking to paint or powder coat the entire rim not just the inner, I am concerned that if its just painted it will chip easily.

You know, I can't say that in the last six years since I did that little job that I've noticed any chipping at all. It would be really easy to touch up though if there were any. Come to think about it, I don't know how often rocks hit the inside of your wheel anyway unless you're off-roading. I recommend not off-roading in your Cobra.

I own ERA 2095 and since my car is white, I was looking for a little more contrast between my car's color and the FIA style wheels. I didn't want to buy a new set of wheels and tires so did a little investigating at an area C&C and found that a few guys had had excellent success with the rubberized coatings, some saying they had done their wheels over 2 years ago and had yet to do any touch-up. I liked the idea of being able to reverse to original if I ever wanted to, so gave it a try. $16 and an hour or two of labor and I had the exact look I was seeking. It has been several months now and they still look like the day I coated them, with 0 touch-up. I just take a little extra care when cleaning off the brake dust. The product I used was PLASTI DIP multi-purpose rubber coating gunmetal #0062. It is a perfect match for aged magnesium look. I used the "deck of cards" technique to mask, so didn't even have to break down the tires and rims. Just follow the directions on the spray can and apply the coats as they suggest. I haven't posted enough to be able to post pics but I am on the ERA Facebook page, or if you contact me I will be happy to e-mail you photos.
