Powder coated my stock wheel

I wanted to paint my stock rims black, so I thought I'd start with my spare as a test. Had a guy sandblast and paint it with a satin black. He said the original coating was difficult to get off. As I see the finished product, I notice the surface of the wheel is dimpled or textured.

The painter said is the metal, not the paint. Said it is common with a cast wheel. I didn't notice any of this when it was OEM. Anyone else having this issue?

May need to add that the wheels are for my 2012 JKU, not the YJ in my profile pic.

Looks like he used to hard of a material while sandblasting. Had two friends do thier rims one blasting the other aircraft paint remover and they both came out perfect. I would ask him what he used cause it looks like bird shot.

^^^^^ x2. I'm sure the guy who did it knows it should look nicer. Looks nice though!
