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:

I wonder if that might be different rim than the one you took in to get powder coated.

Only an IDIOT would have powder-coated that wheel after that kind of damage.... Maybe they thought the PC would cover the crime.

I doubt it...They were very honest about the damage.

Possible...but they did own up to it and paid for the rim. Either way..I was refunded the money I had paid for the rim..now just need to find another backup rim

Rear wheels are a dime a dozen, wingpilot... well, almost.
Average price from a trike shop about $50. A NEW one with "0" miles maybe $75.
I have a 'bent-wheel' I'll sell ya for $25. (cheaper than you $40 one anyway) I'm kidding of course.
I'm assuming your powder-coat shop gave you back your $40 AND didn't charge you for the powder-coat job.
At least you have a paper weight that didn't cost you anything.

Check trike shops for a new wheel. Your best deal without paying for shipping.

My opinion...I would never powder coat a rear rim especially...A lot of shops will not mount tires because of the very real possibility of paint damage and a law suit...It has happened ask my tire man...The wheel is out of sight under the bike ..no one can tell whether it is powder coated or Duplicolored ...I tell my tire man not to worry about the paint as I will repaint it anyway...A lot easier to get my tires changed out.....$7.50 my last rear change out....
