Late Update but got my rims back 2 weeks ago.

The final cost was

Labor: $240
Paint: $80
Delivery: $20

There are some runs, but overall its pretty good.

The pic posted is the one he sent me 1/2way through the job. Ill post more later.

For $340 I would expect a damn good job. "Some runs" and "overall its pretty good" doesn't sound like great value.

You might pay a bit more or Greens or Panther but they would definitely do a perfect job... doesn't sound like saving [a few bucks] was worthwhile.

Yea, I would recommend Greens or Panther, or even Western Wheel Craft.

If you want to skimp out on the paint you might as well go grab some $100 Crappy Tire Rims.

Well; Lesson Learned

For future reference, you can probably get them blasted and PC'd for about the same amount.
