Powdercoating Chrome Wheels

The chrome hasn't held up too good and is slightly pealing away on the inside of the wheels. I plan on sandblasting and powder coating them... just the insides....

Does the chrome need to be removed in order to powder coat them correctly? Or is a light coat needed of blasting?

Will baking the wheels in 400+ degree temps jeopardize the strength of the wheels?

thanks!

Subscribing. I'd like to do all I can before bringing it to the powdercoating shop. I can't believe how thin the chrome is on my wheels....

Just irritating to pay as much I did on these...and have them do this. Especially after I was told you get what you pay for.. ...

2nd set.. should be my 3rd...

Re: Powdercoating Chrome Wheels

If it's peeling I'd probably look into getting it stripped. If the chrome was good you can powder it fine (although some shops say that you can't).
Make sure it's a shop that's done automotive wheels before as to make sure that you don't have any issues.

Good point... I would sure hate to have them get worse.... That would be my luck..

Re: Powdercoating Chrome Wheels

Mine were peeling a bit on the insides...just the chrome...not all the way down to bare aluminum.
They sandblasted them and feathered in the rough edges then did a powdercoat primer which was sanded smooth just like paint then the final black coat was done.
They look awesome. Cost me 450 bucks for all 4 of my 22's.

Spending money I don't have on crap I don't need to impress people I don't know.
