Hey guys.

Does anybody know a good location in ABQ that powder coats wheels? Or what do you guys recommend for a matte black finish?

At 60k miles, my TSW's are starting to show their age from water spots, salt and sun.

Plastidip! You can do all 4 wheels for about $20. Comes off with a pressure washer if you get tired of it.

Synergy Coatings behind Century Rio 24 is the only place I've ever used. Good work. basic 4 wheels will cost you around $90. Colors go up from there.

This. +1. Plus it's so much simpler and faster.

With the awesome roads/potholes/maintenance that the NMDOT provides for us around here, I wouldn't spend more than I had to on wheels around here.

Thanks for the suggestion Ivan.

I spoke with Bobby and he quoted $85/wheel in semi-gloss black. Now I need to find some spare wheels or rental for 4 days lol.

So I tried out some blue pinstripe you convinced me of doing. Can't see it too good in the pic.

Weird how a bright color still has the subtle look.
I like it!
(nice vents too!)
