Default Best powder coating near Seattle?

Hey all, I'm wanting to get my brand new wheels powder coated and was wondering which shop I should go to around the Seattle area (or further west). Any recommendations will be greatly appreciated!

Northwest powder coating up in Maryville has done some cool stuff for me in the past.

Actually they contract the work with local shops, and only do steelies.

I had a different experience, no communication, never got an estimated price until it was done and there were a few imperfections in the work itself. That said, the end price was reasonable and they were fairly quick.

Bring your parts already stripped/cleaned as they out source all of that work.

I had mine done by Perfection Powdercoating in Puyallup at the reccomendation of PIA. All work is done at thier shop including stripping/prep and Mike the owner took great pride in his shop and workers, gave me a walkthrough and answered all questions I had. Work was done in 1 week from drop off.

I had a set of TE 37s done there several years ago and they were great. Only charged $200 for the set of 4 including stripping, prep, everything. And the quality was great.

re: Powder coating inc in mukilteo

see above.

they did my wheels on my RS and a few other pieces
just get pricing up front and if you need any blasting done, it will take additional time as they do out source that work.

Quality is good however and I'm super happy with how the wheels have held up over time!

Hmm I guess I have a few places to choose from haha price isn't the hugest concern for me since I spent quite a bit on the wheels themselves so I'm really just looking for top quality.

Not sure about wheels, but most of our commercial work goes to Bulldog Powdercoating in Mukilteo. They do their own blasting, sounds like some of the others suggested do not.

I tried Cascade Wheel in Lynnwood and I was very pleased with the color and quality. They do wheel balancing, welding, straightening, and curb rash fix as well as custom colors and I think nearly almost all sets are done for around $550.

Pricing was requested on 4 separate occasions including at drop off of parts. I was never given a solid number and was told I would receive a call with the price, which did not happen. That said, I'm happy with what the end price was and turnaround time.

See one of the multiple imperfections:

It appears they did not pre-bake the caliper to allow moisture from their washing to dissipate. I do not doubt that they can do quality work, they just did not meet my expectations for the reviews that they have received. Due to my timeline, I did not complain about the above imperfections.

I've used cascade wheel repair in lynnwood for multiple wheel sets, and I've had powdercoating inc in mukilteo do a set too, all were awesome results.

the thing I like about cascade wheel is they do the whole shebang.. tire mount/dismount/balancing, and they've even been able to let me drop the car off and just pick it up when it's finished. most places you need to bring the wheels with the tires already removed etc.. it's a pain in the ass!!
