Re: Powder Coating Rim?
I had my ralley wheels powdercoated, the trim rings and center caps mark the powder coat up quite badly, but I'm sure they would do the same to paint. The trim rings and center caps cover up the scratches anyway, so it doesn't really bother me. I haven't noticed any issues where the lug nuts are torqued down. The powder coat seems a bit flexible so it's probably more resilient than paint. One thing to watch is the thickness of the powdercoat causes the center hole that goes over the hub to become a bit smaller. My front wheels went on a bit tight, but were almost impossible to take off. It's probably a good idea to clean that area up a bit before bolting the wheels back on the car.
