    I have a set of konig drivers i got last year. Upon taking them off for winter i wanted to get new tires so i picked up some new toyo proxies. And my rims are in bad shape. I hit a curb the first snow of the year and just knicks from parking and so on... but i wanted to get them refinished. I wanted to go with black again so i called a few powdercoating shops around in maryland and the cheapest price i could find for powdercoating my 16 inch rims are 235 plus tax. Is that too much...Should i shop around more or do u think that is cheap? I dont know... i know i just want them to be done by the spring time.

    go to Les Slob, i mean Les Schwab and see what they charge because i know they do it.

    personally that sounds reasonable to me 60 bucks a wheel might be a little high, but im on the west coast so stuff could be different over here

    $235 for 4 wheels is cheap. I just paid over $650 for my entire suspension, 4 wheels, valve cover, IM and some sml. assorted pieces. Just the wheel where $300 of the total. I say go for it. But I'm on the West Side also, so there might be a price difference.

    How much weight did it add to your wheels?
