    powder coating

    I currently have silver VXR rep's on my blue H, however, I am going to put them on my white H and would like them powdercoated black.

    Does anyone know of any companies in the north east,sunderland/durham/middlesbrough area that do this and any idea of prices??

    Wheels are almost new and un damaged

    I don't know of any companies up your way but average wheel prices for a straight blast and coat should be £25 per corner

    I think romax is about £45-£50+ vat per wheel

    You're being bent over then, unless the wheels need work. If it's a straigh colour change then that's far too dear

    thing is mine arent damaged mate, so I dont really want to pay SEM or Romax prices, like davecoupe says, £25 a corner is more than enough just to change the colour.

    If I dont find anywhere reasonable I'll just have to have them painted at the body shop.

    The £25 that i would pay doesn't include the removing and refitting of tyres but that should be no more than £15

    If there's no damage to the wheel they only have to burn off the paint and shot blast them, then powder them in one hit
