Powder Coating Rims

Has anyone powder coated their rims?

I have the stock M-Sport 19" rims and was thinking of getting them powder coated black.

You would however need to remove the tires when they powder coat them. I'd go satin!

I've done it on a set, happy I did. Key, like everything, is finding someone who knows what they are doing.
Downside: if they chip, sticks out like a sore thumb! I went from hyper silver and coated them gloss black. Get a little touch up paint and it will help.

I am going to do my msport wheels a gunmetal grey, I'm jut waiting on my buddy (Trophy truck builder) to have a big batch of stuff so I can add them in for cheaper. should have them done with in about 30 days, i'll post pics once I get them.

I had an old car that I had them do them I had no chipping probs, but if you curb your tire you cant really stop that.

I vote DO IT too!

if the Powdercoater jumps right on it, then yea next day. I had to wait three days last time. I already bought a caliber paint kit (black) so I can keep my self busy while my wheels are gone. I had the car in my own garage, had the rubber removed then just dropped the rims off. I plan on doing that again. Prob have places that will do it all for you just expect an extra cost obviously. I'm cheap lol

I've done it. Around these parts...SoCal, it's around $400 for standard colors + $100 for gloss. Best way is to throw on some temporary wheels, remove the tires and just take them the wheels. Otherwise, they'll charge more. Mine took 4 days.
