American Racing wheel question Paint or powdercoat?
I want my American Racing Torque Thrust wheels to be darker like the oxidized originals. I've looked at the Eastwood Charcoal wheel paint and I'm also considering having the spokes powder coated. Any suggestions by those of you who have done this? I have limited painting experience, but I think I could scuff up the light gray paint on the wheels, degrease them and mask them off for paint. I figure two good coats should be good.............or...............I could have them powder coated. Please chime in with pros and cons for each method. BTW powder coating will cost approx $75 per wheel. Painting will be less expensive, but not sure how long it will last. Thanks guys.
