Powdercoating

Do the stock wheels on a 2006 TRD need to be blasted before having powdercoating? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

A reputable powder-coater should blast them as a part of their coating service.

Now, if there's a prior coating that's difficult to remove, they may charge you a bit more. But a existing clean surface should not be a problem.

We have a real nice facility down the road that will coat them for 25 a wheel, but they don't do the blasting there. Either way they are half to a third of the price as most other powdercoating shops. Just needed to know if I needed the blasting.

It would be best and wise to sand blast anything that's going to be powdercoated. Most shops that quote you will often include the price of sand blasting, but be sure to check with them first.

Definitely have the wheels sand blasted prior to powder coating. The powder coat will not stick well if you don't.

You can also have the wheels "dipped" or acid washed.

Some powder coaters will tell you that just hand sanding the wheels first is acceptable. I'd still pay the extra cost for sand blasting to ensure that adhesion is not an issue.

I'd also make sure that the powder coater doesn't allow paint to get on the backside of the hub (have them mask it off). You don't want paint built up between the wheel and the hub.
