I would not powder coat the wheels but that is just me.
Factory wheels were dipped in a semi-gloss primer and then
painted the argent silver as you probably know, hence mist
(over-spray) went through the windows to the back side of the
wheels. If properly prepared and epoxy primered (not rattle can)
and then top coated the wheels should last you for a very long
time. We prepared ours using soda blasting, and soaking crevices
with evapo-rust. Do not use glass bead or other media as it gets i
n the crevice and you will not be able to remove all of it.
Just my thoughts for a great looking stock wheel to last a long time.
One of mine just before paint.

Re: 1968 z28 DF wheels

Foster I agree with Chick on not powder coating the rims. Are these wheels for the Green '68 Z? If so, that car is stunning and factory correct so it might be worth the effort to keep it as original as possible.
