Thanks for sharing the information about your expereince with DTD, I have
some additional questions:

1) What did Discount Tire Direct charge for the additional powdercoating of
your wheels
1) How long did they take to deliver them 
3) What type of color choices did you have? 

any additional information would be appreciated!
