2012 DX Wheels

can anyone tell me if the black wheels on a 2012 DX are paint or powder coated?

Everything is JMHO. Accuracy is not assured.

The wheels are powder coated. It's stronger and more scratch resistant. If you paint your wheels they will chip and then they will just keep flaking. No one wheel should ever be painted

Fairly certain they are painted. The minor scratches mine has from tire changes agrees with me.
