• What is the difference between wheel powdercoating and wheel refinishing?

    Wheel refinishing takes on a completely different meaning when it comes to wheel related services in general. Wheel refinishing is a full on multiple point inspection of the wheel, which is followed by a multitude of procedures to make sure that the wheel is serviced the right way. It is a much more intricate process than simply powdercoating.

  • What is the cost to have a wheel refinished?

    There are a multitude of factors that are taken into consideration when pricing a wheel refinishing job. When wheels are brought in, size, finish desired, if a tire is mounted, and if you will be dropping your car off, are all factors that partake in pricing. Separate pricing is also available for account holders.

  • How long does the process of wheel refinishing take?

    Every wheel is different. In some scenarios, wheels may be done in less than 24 hours. For other projects such as multi piece wheels, specialty and custom colors that are not often in stock, as well as wheels that require fabrication and CNC work, it will definitely require more time.

    We also offer 24 hour or same day turnaround times as well as on spot wheel repairs such as a repair on a cracked or bent wheel by appointment only.

  • What is better? Paint or powder?

    Depending on the use of vehicle, it may vary. For the most part, high heat paint will hold up to everyday driving and is very durable and maintains a nice sheen for the remainder of its life if maintained properly. For cars with bigger brakes, and cars that experience some or lots of track use, and higher temperature are better suited for powdercoating.
