    [FONT=Tahoma, Calibri, Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif]Hi
    I wanna get my wheels refurbed (standard 17" avus) but not sure if I wanna powder coat them or wet paint them, going for the gunmetal/anthracite colour.
    But what's the pros and cons of both of them; I heard if kerb the powder coat finish I have to get the whole wheel coated again as you can not touch it up?

    Thanks[/FONT]

    I got my wifes' wheels powder coated. It is much more durable, and less likely to deteriorate.
    I wouldn't have thought there would be much trouble touching them if if you had to
    I would say that having had them powder coated, make sure the centre boss is clean before you fit the wheels, as if not, it gets less than a little amusing trying to take them off afterwards!
