Wheel hubs.

What is people's opinions on c15 hubs.
I 've seen a few with gloss black and others just polished metal.
Let's hope this post doesn't offend the phantom post deleter.

I must admit I just painted my B40 hubs with Silver smoothrite paint.
With hindsight I would have had them powder coated what ever colour you like. One thing to consider is cleaning and maintaining them.
Powder coated hubs are easy to clean with a soft brush - the smooth surface allows them to be cleaned easily. Polished metal may be more difficult to keep the polished appearance as access through the spokes can be fiddly.

I'd recommend getting them powder coated. There's a reasonable place in Nottingham that I have used several times. Just bear in mind that powder coat softens when hot.
