    I am in the process of having my wheels re-done in powdercoat. Having a hard time finding out what color "silver" it should be painted. Local powder coat shops and BMW dealer have not been able to afford me the spot on information that I am looking for. Any and all information regarding wheel painting is certainly welcome.

    The Wheel Collision Center redid my ix wheels three ago and did a great job of matching the original color. You could give them a call and see if they are willing to help. They do a lot of BMW wheels.

    Thanks for the tip. I will certainly contact them. Wurth sells a shaker can of wheel paint. I am going to research them to see when they come up with for something in a powder.

    I had mine done by Prince Wheel Services in June 2011.

    I had originally viewed a thread over on http://www.m5board.com about Shadow Chrome refinishing done for the M5 crowd. The thread is titled: My M5 OEM Shadow Chrome Wheels: Quest for Refurbish Perfection. You can read the thread without registering (I think). I considered that finish for my wheels and contacted Prince Wheel Service to discuss. Ended up going with standard / original BMW finish for my iX wheels.

    It was only $50.00 to ship all five wheels via Fed Ex from Indiana.

    I am extremely pleased with the result.
