Powder coating wheels

I have a 10 Sahara which is white and I want to add black wheels. I am on a limited budget so I was wondering about powder coating the factory wheels. Will the powder coating hold up to dings, winter salt, etc.? Thanks

You can probably pick up some black steelies for not much more than pc'ing your stockers, and you'll have more options for tire sizes available with aftermarket backspacing.

Except he's likely to rub the calipers on a JK with 15x8 Cragars, but 16's would be fine...

I actually have my own powder coat booth and gun, so if it were me I would just do them myself. But I agree with Inferno Girl. If you have to do them yourself, I could guess that you will pay right around $75 per wheel. Considering you can get those Cragar's for about $50, that might be the way to go. And if you wanted aluminum wheels instead of steel, you can get the wheels that I have for a little over $100 each: Pro Comp 7069-6873 - Pro Comp (Series 7069) 1-Piece Flat Black Finish Alloy Wheel for Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec
