Yeah, for sure watch out for this as even in the worst case scenario you should only be charged $400-$800 for the service of someone removing, powdercoating, and remounting your wheels.Use the search function to find lots of information and pictures.
Many dealers are powder coating the wheels on orphans and marking the car up an absurd amount- $1500-2000- when you can get it done for $100 a wheel or less.
My brother and I taped off the spokes on my yellow/black, roughed them up with a green scrubbie and spray painted them glossy black with some high performance professional grade Rustoleum (spray can, about $5). Worked great. Looks great. And the afternoon with my brother doing it was priceless. Sure beat the $900 the dealer wanted. You can see pictures of my car on, I think it's page for of the gallery section on this website, under yellow smarts, or something like that.Do they have to powder coated or can they be spray painted?
