Question Powdercoating Wheels - weaken wheels?


I would like your opinion. I am interested in powdercoating an extra set of OE M6 wheels. They are forged.

I want to powdercoat my OE wheels, but the 400 degree F curing process scared me as this may wreck the forging.

I will be tracking my car and don't want to weaken the wheels.

I have already painted one set of wheels but I am interested in powdercoating the other set.

Any opinions on whether the 400 degree F would weaken forged wheels?

Anyone know of a good place in the Toronto area?


I have posted this thread on the M5board but there is no definitive answer there.
