Wheel powder coating recommendation sf bay area

We are going to be taking delivery of a new X5 M50i with the 20in 740m wheels. I wanted to get the black 22in wheels, but didn't want to have to run two sets of wheels for winter and summer driving. I'm thinking powder coating the 740m wheels black might be a good solution. Does anyone have a recommendation for an SF bay area shop that you have used for wheel powder coating before? If so what did it run you?

Thanks

I plan on doing the same thing, but I'm near Sac. I was given a ballpark of $1k before, but I didn't get a firm quote from anyone yet. The car is still on order.

I originally called a plastidip shop to find out how much to just plastidip the wheels would be. They're the one that told me how much powder coating is and that they have a shop they worked with. The plastidip place looks like it closed since then.

Interested in the same - for exact same reasons. Getting a M50i and wanted the 20 all seasons for ride/versatility/tire cost but I also really want a black rim. I think a gloss black powder coat is the right move. Post if you find a good source!
