Icon8 ugh scratched my a wheel! lol...



tore up one of the lips on a wheel when i was out with my quad yesterday...thinking about powdercoating them now :)

im thinking if i leave the machined part on the spokes and left the chrome centercap and powdercoat the rest flat black it might look good?

opinions? lol

i wouldnt sweat it, there just amp wheels. with the cost im sure you can get workin at LS i would just replace it, it would probly be cheaper.

and if you did PC the wheels you would have to repair the damage with bondo or somthing similar, then have them done....but still not worth it for that wheel.

btw i couldnt see the damage

lol they are ALL gone. discontinued and sold out every single store in the company,

thats not the scratched wheel. its not too bad. i can send them in to our headquarters and have them done for $125. ive seen wheels way worse off and they looked brand new when we powdercoated them :) or i might just deal with it until these tires are worn out and get my 18's!! wooohoo!

You cant powder coat it if its bondo it will melt or burn.

Its not worth it to powdercoat a cheap $110 wheel, you are better off just filling in with some polishing compound, clean it up - wax it and call it good.

Powder coating won't stick to anything you can't magnetize...
