Hey guys I found a place that does it for $35/wheel, and I asked the guy if he can do a special group buy and he was ok with it. So if I can get 2 people to do 4 rims, he will lower the price to $30/wheel. (Save $20 over regular price) I am gonna do a set myself so that's 3 sets of rims total. Let me know if any of you guys are interested. The place is located in Santa Clara. E-mail me at jordan2wenty3@aol.com

Powdercoating the O.E. style wheels or basic cast wheels is O.K. Any forged or higher tech light weight wheels that is heat treated, SHOULD NOT be powder coated. The temperature and duration sometimes used in powdercoating can alter the heat treatment of the wheel and make them soft. Sometimes the powder coating process does not come out right the first time and the wheel must be stripped and re-powder coated. This subjects the wheel to the heat once again.

This same rule applies to chrome plating, hi-tech wheels SHOULD not be chrome plated.

I am gonna do the stock wheels, thanks for the info. The guy mentioned that it's not a good idea to powdercoat forged wheels also.
