    hey Fellas, looking at going white wheels on my oxford cobra.. the issue is if powdercoated how do they match up the color on the car?? I would like them to be the same tone of white.. for the few that roll on white on white what did you guys do?

    I would bring the car to the powder coaters and have them use that to make the match.... powder holds up better than regular paint.

    How big of an operation is your coater? When I had my white wheels done for my old fox, I brought the car with me becuase my coater had a couple of different shade's of white for us to choose. We eye balled it and got pretty damn close

    ^This. My PC guy has 3-4 rings of colors. Probably over 1000. One has to be pretty close to your car.
