Powder Coated Rear Rim
So a while back I had purchased a used rear rim to have as a spare, ready to mount tire. When purchased it was a bit rough and I had cleaned it up some with polish and such, but it was never to be in great condition. I had found a local powder coating shop the gave a price of $60 to powder coat the rim...so why not! It took a couple weeks and I just picked it up today. I had spoken to the shop manager and he had indicated that there were issues with the corrosion that was present and it seemed to cause some pimpling. Had cleaned and prepped the rim a second time, but the pimpling reappeared. But there was another issue. During the process, the rim had fallen off the table or rack and had dented and put a crack in the rim, and another crack had been discovered.
With the cracks...I will not be putting this on my Wing....this is now a big paper weight or door stop.
I had only paid $40 for the rim and the shop refunded the $40 since they caused the crack. So now I have a useless rim to try and discard! Will be looking for a new spare in the future. Attached a couple pictures:
