I have some 17" BBS RC Audi wheels. The finish is starting to peel on one of them so I am going to go ahead and have the whole set blasted and powder coated.
My question for anyone who has black powder coated wheels is how much gloss should I get? The shop recommended either 80% (really shiny) or a 20% (more of a satin) gloss. The 80% he said will show small scratches easier. I'm not sure with the 20% if people will always think the wheels are slightly dirty.
For ease of maintenace which finish is better for a daily driver?
I guess it is actually 90% Gloss that the shop has. I dropped the wheels off yesterday afternoon, so I have to wait and see now how they turn out.
How long after I pick them up should I wait before having the tires mounted? Or is there no need to wait?
Set them outside for 24-36 hours you'll be fine....especially since its so hot already..btw you will need to keep your tires looking fresh otherwise they will look tan against you shiney black wheels trust me...if they werent a different bolt pattern you could've put my gti wheels on to see how black will look...........
