Default Anyone know of a place to get wheels powdercoated in the Charlotte/Union Co area?

Has anyone one here had a set of wheels powdercoated? I'm thinking about buying a set but they're black and would want them painted/powdercoated to a color similar to my current wheels, kind of a gunmetal color.

Can anyone here recommend a shop that does quality work or can anyone who's had it done tell me what it cost you? I'm located in Monroe so I'd prefer someone in Union County or around the Charlotte area, but would go out farther for the right price.

I looked to get my motorcycle wheels powdercoated a while back. It was quite expensive. Would be easier to find wheels in the color you want and pay a little more for them.

Robbie, Cobra4me on the forum, knows a guy that he says does very good work. They are in the Hickory area though.

Dana, who did the powdercoating on Shope's wheels? He might be closer.

Thanks for the info and suggestions. Depending on the prices I'm given, I may just paint them instead. I've been doing some reading and it seems like when done right, the paint should hold up fine and would obviously cost quite a bit less
