In another thread it mentioned there is a problem in the lugnut area when you powdercoat wheels. Can anyone elaborate on this as I plan to PC my wheels black on a yellow car.

i am curently going through this with my wheels. what happens is when the pc'er sprays they coat the outside but don't spray deep enough into the holes. when they bake it the pc looks great on the outside but is uneven and dull in th holes. end result... another trip to the pc :mah:

H.R.E. & C.C.W. advised me NOT to PC. They both said the results are a crap shoot. They both advised to paint instead.

the problem with painting is that it chips.:mad: if you do get them painted make sure BEFORE you take the wheels that they pop out the center caps a few times to make sure the paint doesn't come off. also be carefull when putting in the lugnuts! dont ask how i know :bang:
