Powder coated wheels.
« on: October 09, 2018, 08:43:36 PM »
Any body have experience with powder coating aluminum wheels and running them on moderately offloaded rig? 

Pricing for 4 still around $200?

What about rattlecanned?
May that for which I prepare never come to pass.

I don't know much about specifics, but one of my customers told me about a good experience powder coating wheels at a place in Preston or Fall City. Can't recall for sure.

 I had some things done out at Perfection Powder Coating out off of Canyon in Puyallup, they did a great job and were reasonably priced. They do a lot of wheels. (253) 875-0010
You might call them and ask.

Water corrosion on exhaust pieces in my boat. Sand blasted, powder coated and reinstalled, they matched the color pretty much spot on.
The things that come to those who wait, may be the things left by those who got there first!

How much, and who did it?

i had skagit powder coating do them. https://skagitpowdercoating.com/services/   I waited till i needed new tires and had the tire shop run em over. I think it was like $65 a rim. been real happy so far. If you can pick the shade and wait till there doing a bunch of stuff the same shade it saves you some money.

Curious if they did any prep?
Media blast?
Toyota 'alloy' wheels always corrode and the cheap finish flakes off.
Need to be stripped.
I wonder what that would cost?

Powder Vision is the place

Powder vision did my wheels back in 2010 in a glossy black. The chrome was flaking off and they were pitted pretty bad. They looked great for about 4-5 years, the de-icer is just brutal on everything though. I am going to have them done again in the next month or so in a flat or satin tan/brown. Cost is $400, still cheaper than new wheels. I would ask your preferred shop to go light where the center cap goes. Mine are snug and Les Scwhwab has destroyed every center cap multiple times when I do a tire rotation. I'm hoping I can find a generic cap that fits since mine are no longer available.

Good luck,

G.

There are some really durable ceramics, also. Something to consider
