    Honestly, I'd be tempted to color match (as close as possible) with powdercoat given all the comments about how easy the paint is to scratch.

    Powder coat is cheaper to do and holds up a lot better,, where did you get your center caps, and what did they cost, I'm switching to chrome center caps, I'm going with black vapor chrome for my hellcat

    I believe the OP is going to paint the center caps to match the Brass Monkey wheels. I did this to match the black Vapor Chrome I have on both my rides. The center caps from Chrysler, I believe are only chrome.
    And, I believe the factory Brass Monkey wheels are powder coated. Better wear.

    Stupid me lol....I just looked and the Brass Monkey center caps are Brass Monkey. I had my SRT wheels PVD black vapor chromed at Detroit Wheel and Tire on 14 MiRd in Troy. PVD is harder and lighter weight than standard chrome. Love em on both my rides!

    Check out Detroit Wheel and Tire. They deal in only OEM wheels at Troy, MI. They may be able to pop on a chrome one just to see if the look is what you want. Ain't cheap, but worth it!

    It's a wheel candy store lol

    Can you post some pics of the PVD black chrome?

    I have an extra set of Hellcat rims that I intend to powder coat or PVD and resell them. I have a set of hyper black rims inbound and will put those on the car with new tires. I'm sure the hyper black will be my preferred setup, but I'm torn on trying something like a PVD black or tinted look as well.

    Yep, I'm actually interested in seeing our Hellcat rims in that finish. I love that Lexus rim.
