    Powder Coating Rims

    I am thinking about powder-coating my 19" Carrera S rims to match my black 997. Any thoughts on that guys? By the way do you guys know who I should contact and how much it would cost to get it done? I am currently in Orange County, CA. Thanks.

    Re: Powder Coating Rims

    talk to wheel enhancement. they're in LA.....

    www.wheelenhancement.com

    Re: Powder Coating Rims

    I will vouch for Wheel Enhancement; I haven't seen them paint/powdercoat, but I did buy a set of wheels from them. Straight up guys, they know their stuff, and they are P-car specialists.

    Plus they let me sit in their Supercup 997 the day it got delivered to their shop

    Re: Powder Coating Rims

    IMHO I have seen the 19" wheels black coated and sadly they looked bad. I am sorry just my opinion. The only black wheels I have seen that I like are the Techart wheels. Now you can go to Grandprix Wheels in Newport Beach on Newpoet Blvd and they will do magic with your wheels, gr8 people. Or go to Culver City which is one hour from OC, go to wheel enhancement, they will trade your wheels, check their website. Xlnt selection and very knowledgeable. I have dealt with both GrandPrix Auto sport (NEwport Auto center uses them) or Wheel Enhancement and they are both awsone.
    Good luck buddy

    Re: Powder Coating Rims

    Yes Grand Prix on Newport at 19th. Reputable, been there forever.

    Can't remember the name of the guy running the store when I was there a couple months ago; he was helping me find out if they had any 997 C4 takeoffs in stock when one of his employees had a tantrum about finishing a customer's car. He went over to straighten him out and I swear it was almost like wathing a Sopranos episode; I think any more lip from his emplyoee and he would've wound up wearing cement shoes at the end of his shift, lol.

    Re: Powder Coating Rims

    I like these since they refer back to the old Fuch wheels. BUT painting the entire rim isn't that great. They will look like a shiny version of the "mule" rims at introduction.

    Re: Powder Coating Rims

    Thanks guys for all the inputs.
    From what I have heard, when they powder coat the rims, they have to do it to the entire rim instead of just the center part like MMD suggested. Even though I agree with him that it looks better that way. Should I try to paint the rims then or just get a new set of rims that I like.

    you may just want to get a new set of rims Then you can use the orignal wheels for winter

    yeah, after all the costs for a GOOD (i.e. costly and done-right) preparation and subsequent powdercoating it might be just a few more bucks for a new set of wheels.
