There are two approaches to powder coating spoked or laced rims on cars, motorcycles, and bikes.
One, leave them in place and powder coat over them.
Or two, remove and powder coat separately.
Making the best decision
If you’ve got dirt bike rims, spoke rims on bikes and motorcycles or cars that you’re looking to get powder coated, the question you need to ask is:
To take apart or… to not take apart?
Aside from the cost in additional labor using the second approach, powder coating them in place means that in the long term they cannot be taken apart. They will be entirely coated and non-removable.
That’s great for maintenance, however, if you’re wanting the full and complete restoration to spoked rims consider the longevity of the project at hand. You will need to how long are you keeping it or what level of restoration are you wanting to achieve with these spoked rims.
