Hey guys new to the site, did alot of searchin on powder coating my factory polished alum 20's. Ive decided to have them powder coated in a blach chrome, does any one know if i should have them blasted before? or what prep is needed before i take them to get coated? Also does anyone happen to have a pic of black rims on the charcoal/ graphite colour of truck like mine? do you think i should just keep them as they are or would black look better?

Black rims look good on dark color trucks like yours.

black will look great. I think anyplace that powdercoats could blast them if needed but they will charge you. Regardless of where it is done, the wheels will need prepped.

Are your wheels chrome clad or alluminum? I can't tell in the picture. You are going to have to figure out how to get the chrome clad "cover" off. If they are alluminum other than basic prep a powdercoater will do they will be fine. I think it will look awesome!

definitly get somebody to do a few photochops for you before you decide. For the money it takes to have them powder coated I wouldn't want to be unhappy with the color

I would strongly suggest getting your rims blasted prior to powder coating. It not only helps give a profile for adhesion, but if there were any residual oils or contaminants the bond will not last. Have you posed this question to the company who is quoting you? They should tell you the same thing.

normally the people doing the coating include blasting in the quote. for instance, i paid 400 for all 4 rims. included blasting, prep, and coating. here are some pics of mine, same color truck...just the newer 20's, they are a semi-gloss.

maybe pick up a set of chrome clads and pull the covers and blast them before having them powdercoated. I know here at least the polished aluminum rims are worth significantly more money than the CC's

Rims look good on your truck and nice little Hacienda in the background.

he has the polished aluminum wheels....why buy chrome clads and rip the cladding off which won't look good because there is a big void in the center of the wheel.

Jordans Right! and if the Company your dealing with doesn't prep the wheels Their self i would find another company!

Think about it How can they be sure the coating will Hold or last if they don't prep them their selfs Just before applying the coating???

IMHO only a Company that really Knows what their doing Is gonna prep their own wheels before coating!That way they can stand behind the warranty!

The Matte black looks Great,but i wonder if you could get them Teflon coated? that would Prolly be a Tuffer finish.... I love the look or the Teflon coated wheels :~)
