Spray wheel rims

Recommended Posts

Any recommendations where I can get a professional job done on my silver rims (want to change to black)

I agree with the above reply that power-coating is the way to go, however the other alternatives are vinyl wrapping and liquid vinyl wrapping. This video gives a comparison: https://youtu.be/64kNx06rFZ4
Probably any shop that offers vinyl wraps will wrap your wheels - it's not permanent and you can remove it without damaging your rims when you get bored with black. https://youtu.be/shhx9O2W6dk
It's obviously not as hard wearing as powder-coating.

I have been having trouble finding a wrap service for the roof of my car.  Jicko have just moved and not very ready and carwrappro are in process of moving and not taking customers.

If you are feeling brave, you could buy wrap from Lazada and try to wrap your wheels yourself. There are many how-to videos on youtube. Otherwise, looks like you should just go to Richco's.

I don't know about the roof though, that would be extremely challenging. Personally, I can't even put a tiny screen protector on my phone without getting dust and bubbles underneath!

Great Decision. Richco powder coated the Cromodora wheels for my Alfa GTV almost 9 years ago. These are wheels with a complicated surface geometry and are still wearing well & looking good.

It's good to  be aware that if you are powder coating your wheels at Richco you will have to remove both wheels and tires from the car and just deliver them the wheels.

 

We took our car there this morning never giving a second thought to removing the wheels, the car is now back on the drive until I figure out a way to do it!!

 

I still want to get it done, it's 20k cheaper than buying new wheels, just got to find a way!!

 

 Anyway apparantly The process takes roughly 3 days. Oh  (that's the managers name) is a very helpful guy, he just was not there to help me this morning !!!
