    Default Powdercoating 2nd Gen S/STs

    Does anyone have experience on getting S/STs powdercoated? I have an all black 4th gen CC and don't want the silver look.
    I currently have the stock express black 20x8s with 35" toyos on my truck. (~114 lbs)
    Would I get any kind of noticeable benefit from switching from that to say SST's with 35" Duratracs (~85 lbs)?

    30 lbs on each corner seems like it'd be a good difference.

    Not looking to make this a track truck.. but I'd assume going back to a lighter weight setup would help me embarrass a few more trucks on the road, right?

    30# reduces in wheels is huge. Its effect is way more than just 30# out of the cab. Plus they are sexy

    That's what I was thinking. I think it's worth the $

    I had some off road 17s an went to 06-08 20s, an it was about 15 pounds heavier on each corner an I deff could notice the differecne in acces an especially in braking. I still have the 17s in the garage an thought about throwing them on with the junk tires an well you know.

    I would LOVE some SS/Ts. Unfortunately the stock is drying up and I'm not buying a whole truck to rob it's wheelz. Plus it'd be breaking the sanctity of SS/Ts. I just swapped out my flower petal 20s for stock17s on my 03. Getting ready for the 1/4mi in Rockingham the week after next. Never ran w/17s or w/o my tailgate and spare. So hoping to beat p.b. of 14.58. QC 2WD.received_10211185641778660.jpg

    Off to powdercoating! $85/ piece was the best I could find in my area. Almost twice what I paid for the wheels themselves but oh well.

    It has been a LONG time... but here's what they look like mounted. Running a 305/70r17 Nitto G2. It rides so much better on the 17s and I can tell it's a ton less rotational mass. truck5.jpgtruck2.jpgtruck4.jpg
