a local powder coater will do them, only problem is that you wont have them for a few days while he's doing them. the process is pricey, but well worth it.

both of my sets of rims were powdercoated:

thanks, what color is your truck? post some pics of it and the style wheels you have on it so we can get an idea here. most decent powder coaters will charge around $50 per wheel. well worth it bc the finish is bulletproof (practically speaking)

i like your truck! those decals on the bed look surprisingly good too.

I'd do a gloss black finish on them (i'm a bit biased though). As for price ranges, $50 per wheel ($200 total) is about the average from the quotes i've gotten. Turn around time depends on the powdercoater, normally a 2 days to a week is normal depending on their work load.
