    Sort of price to paint my rstts?

    Getting quite bored of my 18" rstts now - going to go somewhere and get them painted anthracite or black... What sort of price do you think I should be looking at for that? I am going to replace them within next few months but just want something different for a few months

    You should definately be able to get it for £100 or less. Im in leeds and there is a powder coating company offering to do any 4 wheels for £100 all in, bit far away but its a good guideline price

    Yes, 30 quid a wheel powder coated if you leave the the tyres on, they will refit and balance tyre for you, or 20 per wheel with no tyres the last time I checked.

    Just to let you know though, you are limited to colours with powder coating, you can pay extra for special finishes like a shiney chrome finish. The standard silver finish is not quite as shiney as the Audi's OEM silver finish on OEM RSTTs, and I've noticed the end product with powder coating is not quite as good as paint, but you need to go up close to spot the imperfections.

    It's an alloy wheel at the end of the day, so depends on your priority.

    I had my wheels done at City Powder Coaters as well in Brum, they charged me £20 a rim, I had the wheels taken off elsewhere by a mate.

    The finish on mine were amazing, and they still get alot of attention now, over 2 years down.

    I have noticed that mine have a few chips on them now, but still a very good finish none the less.
