Wheel Respray Cost
Alloy Wheel Respray Costs:
How much does it cost to respray your rims? This is the first question we get asked whenever someone enquires on getting their rim resprayed, and so, we decided we should break down the costs, so you can understand what really happens during a wheel respray, and to make sure you aren’t cheated with hidden fees!
Firstly, we’ll start off with the wheels itself. What is the size of the rim? Many people often aren’t sure of their rim size, and so, to find out, all you need to do is take a look at the rubber on your tyres. It usually looks something like the image as shown. These numbers outline the complete detailed dimensions of the rim, however, the rim size you may be asked to provide is the number at the end, which is circled in red. This is an example off of a Volkswagen Multivan, and as you can see, it has 17-inch alloy wheels. The price of a wheel respray will differ depending on the size of the rim.
What colour you were after is also the biggest factor in price. You can get standard colours such as black, red, white etc… which are a set price, but custom colours, such as pearlescent colours, can also cost more. The powder is another determining factor. Since there are so many suppliers, the quality and pricing of the powder can vary. The same coloured powder can be cheap for one brand, and expensive for another. The most reputable brands on the market are currently Interpon and Dulux. The price may also be affected by the finish of the wheels, whether you get them powder coated in gloss, satin or matte. One point to note about satin and matte finishes is that, whilst long lasting, do not enjoy a lifespan as long as gloss wheels. Because of this, many powder coating companies will offer a clear coat option for your wheels, or may put them into the price. Clear coat is nothing more than sealant and protector against scratches. Sort of like paint protection film for your wheels. Since this is an additional cost, you could save yourself a couple of bucks if you ask to not have it, which is usually favoured by those who do not drive their vehicle but are merely collectors.
We know that not everybody is going to be able to get the rubber of their rims, which means they often have to get the powder coaters to do it for them. Many people often charge extra for this, which is why it’s best to check when calling up and getting a price. Prices may vary from workshop to workshop, but the average price is usually around $250. Again, just make sure powder coater is able to perform this service!

Powder Coating Leaving Paint In The Dust
Powder Coating has been the forefront in clean, environmentally sustainable, and durable painting. It is a technique used in a variety of industries, and yet it remains relatively unknown amongst outsiders. Powder coating is the process of applying a statically charged powder onto a statically charged metal surface. A lot of metal items are powder coated. Some more obviously than others. Some relatively unknown objects that are powder coated include baby cribs, golf clubs, alloy wheels, fridges, dishwashers, fire extinguishers, ATM’s and even vending machines, just to name a few. A lot of these products use powder coating as a lot of them are used in high stress jobs, which would tear away at traditional paints and lacquers. Powder coating is therefore used as a substitute to make up for this, in order to provide high quality, long lasting and durable colour. With recent developments in technology, you can also powder coat at home, thanks to new machines that provide you with a scaled down version of a powder coating workshop.

Powder Coating Rims
Powder coating is better than painting in many ways. One of them is the better finish and higher quality of powder coating when compared to painting. Powder coating leaves a more clean, uniform finish to the wheels, when compared to regular painting.
