Anyone powder coat wheels?

Recommended Posts

I am considering powder coating rims.  Has anyone done this or have any suggestions?  The place I'm using will be using low heat technology, so the temps will not go over 310.  I asked because I was worried about warping.  Any other concerns?

I had a local company powder coat my Chevy Trailblazer SS stock rims (20" Polished Aluminum).   I had my concerns about warping etc. but they came out fantastic.  I chose a darker gray color.   I thought about having my trailer wheels done to match color but I just don't care about the trailer wheels as much.  I have pics I could send you, they aren't the best photos but you can see how they came out.

 

I would recommend it as long as the Powder Coat Shop says it won't be a problem for the rims.

I have had 2 different sets of classic car wheels powder coated and the only issue was color match. warping was not an issue. I was tying to match original silver painted rims and could not get a match, however, the quality was great. both cars have been sold so no pictures.

Like paint, prep is key. Depending on condition, media blasting might be a good idea.
