Exclamation Powder Coating or Painting rims?

Hello, I am from Lubbock Tx, and i was wondering if anyone does powder coating rims for a cheap price??? i got quoted from one of the shops here for 300 dollars a rim?!?!??! and i also got quoted 300 dollars for all 4 rims to paint the rims flat black or glossy black???

I have another question, whats the difference between the two?

I drive a RS camaro v6

Help please!

I also live in Lubbock and I was calling around asking and I found a place in town that will do it for about $300 powder coated all four. But I am going to call all the places again and get new prices. The difference is that powder coating is more is more durable and rust resistant, paint will scratch and the wheels will rust over time.

I got all 4 wheels and all 20 lugs done for like $312 or something at a place here in lbk called quality coatings they took them on a Thursday afternoon and they were done the next day at 3:30. I like them a lot!!!

Granted I'm not near Texas, but up here there's a quality place that does it for $60 a wheel, plus $30 a wheel to dismount/mount/rebalance the tires. They offer a ton of colors to choose from. So I wouldn't pay more than $400 for the set.

I paid 50$ per wheels and 1$ per lug ($220 total). That's in the Tampa area, don't know if our economy's are that different but maybe try and get a cash price? 300 seems a little high to me.
