i checked into having a set powdercaoted a while back - i was looking at nearly as much as a new set of wheels - plus i would have to have either a diffrent vehicle to drive while the wheels were off the truck for seveal days or by a set to hve done - after looking at factory sets i found it just as cheap and better in the long run just to buy a new set of black wheels than powdercoat my factory ones

an unloaded gun is just an expensive paperwieght

you cant fix stupid - but remove warning labels and we can greatly reduce its main offenders !!

I believe a Linex or Rhino spray might throw yoUr wheel balancing oUt.
Might need a lot of extra weights to get it close to balanced.

I know,it might even help, just look at the weights used on some of the larger size tires 2 buckets full
I'll bet some people have done it

Yes, I looked into this and posted about it on F150communistcommunity.com. A friend of mine who deals with a guy was doing it for $50 per wheel. Only problem is I don't have a spare set to use in the meantime. His shop is 3 hours from here, so I would have to take a vacation or something. If I found an oem set REAL cheap, I would do them instead of my stockers.

I think the factory wheels with my color truck would look BadAzz!
