    I was looking into getting my stock 16" steel wheels powder coated and sent an email to Powder Fab in Arlington.

    Here's her reply:

    Seems like a pretty good deal to me. Anyone have a clue of what 60% gloss looks like?

    Anyone used this place before? I sent another email 5 or 6 months ago to a place in Mukilteo and they quoted closer to $55 per wheel.

    Ive had 5 different sets of wheels done at Powder Coating Inc in Mukilteo (all matte black) and can say that their quality is top notch. I believe i usually got 20% gloss which gives it a slight sheen. Ill post pics of my old truck when i get home to give you an idea.

    I've heard great reviews about them as well.

    Eh not really. I never drove it, just sat in the garage. Spent more time cleaning it than I did driving it:rolleyes: It was a fun truck though.
