    Not a fan of rimjobs, it won't last long enough no matter how much you pay.

    If you want to change the colour of your rims the best option is powdercoat.
    Check out Quy's coating a sponsor that can help.

    Agreed. That is why I recommend powder coating for wheels.

    Won't powder wear off after a few years as well? You'll also need a set of wheels to use in the meantime because the process takes about a week.

    For about $150 more than Quy's quote, I bought a set of nice rims with the finish I wanted.

    Powder coat will never wear off. It will only come off if sanded or chemically stripped.

    Agreed on the time frame. The best time to get summer wheels powder coated is while you have your winters on.

    I have powdercoated both my summer and winter setups and they still look great after 4 years for the summers and 3 for the winters.

    Roro designs in Paris does a great job with powdercoating. @roro.designs on Instagram.
