Default Powder Coats

Anyone know somewhere in the tri state that powder coats for cheap? I got about 100/wheel at Wheels America here in philly.

That may be about as cheap as you are going to get, BTW Cheaper never means better when it comes to paint/pc work.... Id rather pay a few extra bucks to somebody reputable and have the job done right the first time.

I agree with you 100% but these are going to be mere 15" steelies so I was looking for cheap/fast or I could probably put together a half decent paint job myself.

I know 100/wheel isn't bad but just seeing what other options may be out there.

Go for it. At best, they look fine, it was cheap, and you can have a smug self satisfaction that you did it yourself. At worst, you sand them down and get them pc'd

+1 for liquid powdercoats in Yardley, PA. Martin is the coolest guy you'll meet and his prices are very affordable. His price includes all prep work needed as well. These are how my wheels came out...
