Default how much does it normally cost?

to powder coat rims by a proffessional. Not some side garage that does side work. Ive heard like 50 a rim but that seems cheap. I have no clue.


And what colors do u suggest, my truck is white?

powder coating is semi gloss... make sure they tape off the mounting surface (where wheel meets hub) and where the lugs nuts rest...

terry, powdercoating also come in: flat, gloss and high gloss.

Otherwise, my rims are the shiny-est semi-gloss i've ever seen.lol

I know there is more than one finish, been in the finish and refinish automotive industry for 18yrs
you miss understood, standard coatings are semi-gloss unless you pay for a different finish
Depending on the application, powders are available in Polyester, Epoxy, and Hybrid formulations.
I do powder coating... Semi's, Glossy, Metallic, Clears, Flats, Veins, Hammer tones, Candies, Glitters, textured and Wrinkles

50 a wheel sounds about right, you should get black chrome.
