Questions about powdercoating wheels

Generally, how much does it cost to powdercoat wheels?? I am thinking about purchasing a set of HREs at a discount price, but they are painted red . I would like to get a silver finish or a brushed aluminum finish. I need to know how much that is going to cost.

Thanks

what you want to know is the cost to strip your wheels and polish the underlying metal.

this would be probably no less than 200/wheel for a top job.

as for your question about powdercoating, are the wheels two or three piece?

mine are 545R which were 125/wheel to unbolt the wheels, strip the clearcoat, prep, and powdercoat the centers black.
