    There's a place not to far from me that does chrome plating for $125 a rim, so powder coating can't be too bad...

      Powdercoated some truck rims for $40 a piece. I think under $60 a piece would be about right...

          I would say it shouldn't cost any more than $50 a rim. I painted the spokes of mine black with rust-oleum a few months ago. It's holding up great and looks good. I left the lips polished. Cheapest way to do it.

            I had some rims powdercoated last year. It cost $115/rim but I think you could get them cheaper if you look around.

                  What about anodizing? Can rims have this done to them?

                    Sure.. You just gotta find someone to do it..

                    Plus, anodizing looks best on smooth surfaces, so I don't thing it would look right with the slight "pebble" effect on the hubs. It's also not as durable as powdercoat.

                    The best thing to do if looking for an "anodized" look, is to polish the rims, and have a candy powdercoat applied (like OCC did on the "black widow" chopper they built, those rims were )

                        A mate of mine tried to have his rims anodised,,for his tiller..and the anodising would not stick correctly to the centres ....

                        ended up powder coating

                          I had a quote in March that was pretty reasonable from a Toronto guy but it is on the other board (I think) I will check and get back to you.

                              But if you powdercoat you don't have to worry about nicks and scratches...unless you just beat your rims to crap and back...
