Reputable shop to powdercoat my wheels

Sorry if I posted this in the wrong section - but none of the other automotive-related threads seem to get many views and I'd rather not have my question fade into obscurity lol.

As the title states... Where have you guys gone to get your wheels powdercoated and how was your experience with the whole thing?

Thanks in advance!

Rainbow powder coatings does a good job but they take forever and ever.

No point going to Greens/Nubrite etc. to get wheels powder coated. I had mine done at HI-Pro Coatings in Langley and they did a phenomenal job for pennies compared to the big wheel repair joints. I've also used Rainbow, however he always takes forever to get stuff done. I was going to take the wheels I had done at Hi-Pro to Rainbow but he was on vacation for a few weeks. Ended up liking the finish on HI-Pros better. And it was uber cheap.

Same deal with Hi-Pro. Bring them the bare wheels and they will get it done. For basically the same price as that guy posted.

Well considering they don't have a tire machine, that dosen't work. Any tire shop should dismount tires for you for around $10/ea.
