Powder coating is becoming a common application for customizing cars, trucks, and motorcycles because of the fast growth in custom coaters and consumers looking to stand out on the road.
Now more than ever auto enthusiasts are able to find these small job shops to get their everyday automotive and residential projects done locally. A simple search for powder coat rims near me will produce several local search results but may not reveal any pricing.
That’s why we’ve created this rim refinishing cost estimator. To help you get an idea on what the average cost of powder coat rims is so that you can decide whether to powder coat or buy new rims. Say for instance you wanted to powder coat your rims black, most custom coaters carry this color in-stock. Some may even have several black powders and finishes available.
This powder coat rims cost calculator includes all the work necessary to complete a set of rims by size and finish in either a single coat color application or a two-coat system like transparent, illusions and candy colors.
