MY17 Forged STI Wheels Paint Powder Coat Sell?

Postby stuandrew » Sun Feb 26, 2017 3:27 pm

Hello Squad,

My first post here so go easy! I have a 2016 MY17 STI with the factory forged wheels. My Heart is telling me that I would like them in Satin Black.

Does anyone have experience with painting or powder coating the factory wheels and have they been satisfied with the end result?

Another option is to list them for sale (7000kms) and buy a set of 18/19s already in black!

Thoughts and input is welcome.

Cheers,
Stu

I hate the finish of powder coating myself. I'd much rather a 2k finish.

I get my wheels done (rerolled) at wheel solutions in Richmond, I've seen their work, it's very very good, they do factory refinish on high end marques. They charge $700 to refinish a full set. Call them and see if they can do mat finishes

sheet $700 for full refirb. Thats a cheap price considering remove and fit tyres as well as cosmetic damage and repaint. We charge for basic silver refirb around $250 a rim. Powder coat isnt the best look but much better wear n tear.

Yeah that's stripped and sprayed. My wheels had very very little rash, no cracks so I'm going to guess price will vary according to condition. That was to go from black powder coat to silver 2k.

I guess its a cheap price to pay if there was damage but they do present as brand new and it would be a strip and paint job only. Worth the call thanks crembz
