Montego Blue Vert with Ink Black Powder Coated Wheels - Opinions

I dropped off my 264s at the powder coat place the other day. I've been mulling over a multitude of colors. Right now I think INK BLACK may be the winner. I'm gonna let him know in Monday. What do you think?

***UPDATE***

They look awesome! My only concern is these wheels have had their share of reported issues, cracks etc. I just found out that my right rear is bent, causing the tire to wear crazy... Paid $150 to have it fixed as a quick band aide. Tires have only been on the car for 7k miles and I never hit anything of note. Hope you have better luck!

Wheels are back home. iPhone pics for now. Real happy with the results. For those interested I got the work done at Liquid Powdercoats in Yardley, PA. http://www.liquidpowdercoats.com Cost was very resonable and included fixing all curb rash. Turnaround time was three weeks. Props to Martin and the staff at LPC.

Looks Awesome!

I like the blue and black combination. I almost wish I had gone with black instead of titanium gunmetal when I purchased my SF-71s.

Just curious - how much did your powder coating come out to?
