Powder Coating Aluminum Rims

Postby In2Trux [OP] » Nov 05 2010, 3:17pm

I'd like to make my stock rims POP a bit... if that's even possible.
I'd like to get the recessed (inner) edges of my stock rims powder coated black and then have the raised edged lightly sanded then polished to a nice shine.
Question: Has anybody powder powder coated aluminum?
Is it possible?

Might be cost prohibitive unless you were going to do it yourself? But I don't know for sure.

I got some info today. I found a local place here that I have done business with in the past.
He does powder coat Aloy rims and if I remove the rubber from the rims, he will do the rest.
Prep the rims
Mask them
and powder coat them for $350. for 4 rims.

Not bad for a top quality, durable finish.
