Wheel powdercoating

I'm looking to powder coat the stock 18" wheels on my JKU when I get new tires and lift, but I can't find any place to do it near where I live. For anyone who's had their wheels coated, can you recommend a place that may have locations around Louisiana? Or just recommend a way to get them done wherever you are, and I'll see if there's something comparable near me. Thanks.

That looks really good. How long ago did you coat them? Looks like they're holding up well.

Tuesday! :P. Haha. But yeah it's $7 for the can. It coated all 4 rims (no spare). And it should hold up great being bedliner an all. It's a fairly satin/flat finish. Just a little sheen and slightly gritty from the additives in the liner. But even if something happened where it scratched up the paint. You can always pick up a new can for $7 and touch up. Where as powdercoating you have to completely redo. and that's $$$$
