    Supposedly, powdercoating when done improperly (too hot) will weaken your wheels. Might want to make sure the place knows what they are doing. Too much heat breaks down the bonds in the wheel, yadda yadda.

    I just had mine done at Bearcoat. They spent a lot of time with me, and were very professional and quick.
    I was told they heat them to 350 or 400F.

    4404-10 St NE, across McKnight from Airport.
    Talk to Todd- good guy.
    $45/wheel and they look like a million dollars.
    Bigboom is also having his wheels done there- can't waitto see how they turned out.

    The Type-S gunmetal coloured rims come factory powdercoated, so far no chips or anything. As far as where to get them done I don't really know in Calgary.

    What color are you doing them?

    Sure?! I always thought they were powdercoated?

    They don't chip easily though, for me anyway... I drive on gravel roads to get to my yard and such.

    Bear powdercoats for $45/rim.(16")
    Even with a SEVERE sandblasting, mine ran $320 for blasting/paint.
    Most should be cheaper, as I had many, many, many layers of paint on my poor rims to blast off.
    They did a terrific job, were very prompt and friendly.

    I uh, painted my rims last year by myself.
    So on top of the base and colour coats the rims came with from the factory (I sanded off the clearcoat), they had 3x red-oxide primer, 3x colour [metallic dark bronze] and 5x clearcoat.
    (or maybe it was 5x colour, and 3x clear- whatever)
    They looked tight, except I'd never done that before, and didn't know not to wet=sand after the last primer coat, so I had a few chips where the paint didn't adhere as well.
    I would have done it myself again, but it's a HUMONGOUS PITA, and not that much cheaper than powdercoating, if you want to use a custom colour, at $16/can.
    Yep-$320 for all blasting, and powdercoating 4-16" rims.(+tax)

    Can you describe what you mean by the wet-sanding? and how do I do it?

    I'm about to paint my rims the next time it gets warmer.
