Price depends on color. Colors that don't require a clear or candy coat will be $50 per wheel. What color did you have in mind?

Yes we have an anthercite. I have a sample at the shop but no pics of it. I'll try to snap a photo for you.
Thanks Jeremy

I don't mean to thread jack but I have a question about powder coating wheels as well. I really want to have my wheels done of my daily driver because that last owner did not take care of them and ruined the finish on a perfectly good set of wheels.

Pictures of the wheels: http://picasaweb.google.com/chris.gervais/WheelFixing#

What I am looking for is to have all 4 stripped and coated black. Also wondering if you can pop them off the rims and put them back on and balance them. Currently Wheel Tech is telling me $450 and that seems a bit high, but then again thats pulling them off, prepping, coating, and remounting/balancing so maybe it's not terrible.

If you can be of assistance that would be great,

I had my Rotas done at Trail in anthracite with clear coat.  I don't have any good pics, but if you want to meet up some time so you can take a look at them, shoot me a PM.
