I am just merely suggesting. with all do respect. powdercoat company will not or would not tell you the truth about powdercoating wheels wheater its a good idea or not. just my experience yes i have powdercoat the entire wheels not just the lip you mentioned its the entire wheels that was out of balance while balancing the wheels without tires. this is just my experience and others that have powdercoat wheels.
YES i totally agree with you that is the reason why some manufacture powdercoat to make it look nice and expensive. AND YES powdercoat wheels haev a better finish than painted wheels.. and again in my previous thread THIS IS AN OPTION FOR CONSUMER, WHATEVER YOU PREFER THEY WILL DO IT FOR YOU.
i have had 4 maybe 5 sets of wheels that were powdercoated then found out on my 1st set of wheels that powdercoating wheels will weaken the wheels. THIS IS CONFIRMED BY SOMEONE, A SPONSOR HERE IN M3POST THAT YES IT WILL WEAKEN YOUR WHEELS but not to an extent that wheel (
) kill you.
LIKE MY PREVIOUS POST I SAID ITS AN OPTION FOR CONSUMER
LETS DO THIS DRIVE YOUR CAR WITH THE POWDERCOATED WHEELS FOR AT LEAST 1 SET OF TIRES AND BEFORE PUTTING NEW TIRES PUT THE WHEELS IN THE WHEEL BALANCER AND YOU WILL SEE THE WABBLE ON THE WHEEL, AND IT USUALLY WILL BALANCE ANYWAYS AFTER PUTTING TIRES AND LEAD ON THE WHEELS.
IM JUST SAYING THIS IS SOMETHING THAT I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS IS JUST MY OWN EXPERIENCE...
IF YOU THINK POWDERCOATING IS BEST FOR WHEELS THEN DO IT IM NOT STOPPING YOU IM JUST SUGGESTING PAINTING IT OR ANNODIZING THE WHEELS ARE OTHER OPTION.
SORRY DUDE NOT TRYING TO TRASH YOUR THREAD JUST A SUGGESTION
well good luck ...
