Powder Coating

Wheel-Tech offers powder coating – a durable and high performance painting technique.  You can choose from a wide variety of colors while achieving a strong resistance to chemicals, abrasion and corrosion.

When we powder coat a wheel we strip off all the old coating, sand blast the wheel, repair any curb damage to the rim, chemically clean and etch the alloy wheel, and then begin applying our powder coat. We have even more detail on our Rim Refinishing page if you are curious. We consider powder coating a wheel the same as rim refinishing.

If you are curious about having your wheels powder coated please give us a call 847-433-1900, stop by our shop with the wheels or send us a picture to our email: wheelfix@sbcglobal.net  Besides powder coating wheels, we also take on individual powder coating projects.  Contact us for more information.

This video demonstrates how Wheel-Tech properly preps a Chrome Wheel for Gloss Black Powder Coating. The video begins with a look at a Bentley Wheel that a customer has brought in. The Wheel has been previously painted Black Gloss and is peeling because of a poor prep job. This video shows before and after examples of many processes that Wheel-tech uses to create a such beautiful finishes.


In order to powder coat any wheel, Wheel-Tech will need to remove the tire off the wheel.  If this is the case, a $25 charge will be applied to the cost of powder coating  each wheel to cover the dismounting and the remounting of the tire plus the Hunter Road Force Balancing of the finished wheel.

Cost: $135 each (priced for rims up to 19″) $160 with a tire

Cost: $160 each (priced for rims 20″ – 22″) $185 with a tire

Cost: $185 each (priced for rims 23″ – 25″) $210 with a tire

**the prices listed above are current and accurate for one color coating (most powder coating jobs) – however, two-tone wheels and certain other jobs may have additional fee’s applied.
