Default Powder coating wheels - KC

I'm considering powder coating my wheels and am interested to hear feedback on places you'd recommend.

Not sure if it makes a difference, but they are a 3 piece forged wheel.

Thanks in advance!

I have used this place before:

Make absolutely sure there is no chance of the oven annealing the metal. Or go a different direction like anodizing.

Thanks for the replies guys. This is the first I'm hearing about the oven annealing the metal. I'll keep an eye on that for sure.

I had my forgestars powder coated several times...not sure which time it happened on but they annealed. Got SUPER soft. Every rim was bent without even hitting pot holes and alloy wheel repair couldn't fix them because they'd pull one dent out and they would become oblong from pushing one side of the wheel.

Wow, I didn't realize the temps to cure powder coat are so high.

Definitely rethinking my options now.

I really appreciate everyone's input.

I would be curious what happened to the forgestars and what grade of aluminum that they use. It may depend on the specific powder as well. There are a lot of powders that cure at 400 degrees F or less and don't take long to bake. That is well under the temp that it takes to anneal most common aluminum grades. If you start getting into the high temp stuff, it is possible, but it would likely not be properly annealed and would over-bake the powder.

Go to Alloy Wheel Repair. Trust me I tried to go another route and things only failed.
