Hey guys. Ive been toying with the idea of powder coating the stock rims and it looks like that is a popular trend around here. What are you guys paying for the stock rims to be powdercoated. Ive had a couple estimates and they are all over the place.

Anyone recommend a shop in the Indianapolis area?

I had mine coated twice as in double coats, for $50 a rim. I went to a big industrial place and they took a few days because they could only fit a small job in on there downtime.

I did a smoke over PC chrome and was ~100 per wheel.
Make sure they are coating the ENTIRE wheel not just the facing.

When I had the 18s done on my old car I went to arrow powder coating on New York street. That was a few years ago though. I'd go again. Indy powder coat is overpriced and they're assholes over there

The place by me charged 125$ per wheel for anything over 18's.

If you bring then just the wheel, (so they don't have to remove then reinstall and rebalanced tire) it's 75$ a wheel.

I guess I shouldve noted that. Mine was ~100 and include double PC and remounting/balancing for an 18/19" combo

if you don't want to have your SS down & idle while getting the powdercoating done, you might want to check out US Wheel Exchange.... they do a wheel exchange program.
you can choose between PC chrome or PC black chrome both look excellent. had the
PC chrome on my SS (for 2 yrs - year round in the Northeast) before I traded it in & as
long as you treat them like you treat your SS paint you be fine.

About $75 a wheel here, that's a loose rim (no tire).

$50 a wheel is what I paid. And that was just bare rims that I spent about 4-6 hours bead blasting before I dropped them off. $75-$100 is pretty good for un-prepped rims I think. You don't realize why the cost to PC things is so high until you do all the prep work yourself.
