    That's not a terrible price actually. Pros...durable if it's a reputable shop. Cons...little heavier...more expensive than painting...

    60 a wheel is pretty good. I have also thought about painting my stockies gold until i get my new wheels. I just love gold on WRB. But i am interested to see how powder coating them would turn out, I thought about just going with the plastidip method. Be sure to post pics please if you go through with it!

    Agreed that it is a good price. I paid $250 for my wheels. I plastidipped my wheels until I got new tires so I wouldn't have to get them balanced twice. Powder coating looks miles better.

    Powdercoating is the way to go. If you are certain on the color do it. Much more durable than paint or plastidip and that is a great price. I paid $100/wheel.

    I've got powder coated 2007 OEM wrx wheels, love them. Pc is more durable than paint and looks nicer IMO. Bought them used with 50% tires for $420. The original owner was a curb magnet judging by the chipped paint, but that was easily touched up with aluminum primer + paint. I also have a pair of spray painted wheels that look nice but need yearly touch-up. The shop near me (golden CO) quoted me $90/hr to sandblast wheels and $100 to pc 4 wheels matte black.
