    Sandblast them yourself at langley u-blast and then take them over to hi-pro coatings for powdercoat.

    Powdercoat will be more durable and it will cost you less.

    Careful of your cushdrive bushings and bearings if powder coating.and the powder coaters quality of finish.had my forged wheels painted mainly because I didn't find the exact color I wanted ,and i would have had to replace the Cush bushings if I removed them.

    i beg to differ about the cost, its a lot easier to paint it single stage paint, just mask of nicely and sand/prep surface, and spray. done. 2 hours work, tops.

    I've had painted wheels last about 2 years. Then the paint starts to fling and chip off. Powder is MUCH more durable, and when taken to a place like Rainbow, where Steve knows his trade, he does a proper bake/cure and creates a superior finish. Yes, you have to replace bearings. Not really a big deal.

    My last front wheel was $50 for the coating and $35 for the blasting taxes in.

    don't sand blast or glass bead them it ruins the surface texture of the wheel and can create a stress riser that can evolve into a crack, if you want to remove the old finish by blasting use crushed walnut shells or baking soda. it will clean up the wheels nice without damaging the surface texture
