Powdercoating is usually 50-75 a rim, price may drop with quantity.

Instead of powdercoating just send them to me and buy gunmetal rims

you can get the average cost I think $75-100 per rims. Like what Sam said, discounted bc of 4 rims.

there are a TON of powder coating places in Orange County and basically all over LA. Make sure they do a good job when you are done, and if it is even the littlest bit messed up make them completely redo it!


There is a real good place in Santa Ana, I think it's called Olympics.

I use to have those rims, and had thought about powder coating but bought bronze CP10's instead. The only way i'd powdercoat the C2 Evo's is if they could some how tape off the lip and leave it silver or do them solid black.

Go to this site to find powder coaters in your area: www.customcoaters.com I thought about having the rims on my old Accord done because they were scraped up. The guy at a local place quoted me $50 per rim.

GHETTOOOOOOO!!!!



and powdercoating wont' scratch and fade like the can will.



Just a warning, I had a friend get some rims done at Grand Prix Tire and they began to chip and flake after about 2 months. Make sure you find a place that will stand behind their work.
