    So I bought some new (slightly used, 15 miles) wheels and tires for my truck off an 2018 tundra. 18" rims that I plan on powder coating black. The guy deflated the tires and stacked the rims on top of each other and there are some surface scratches. Before they get powder coated they sandblast the wheels, will that remove thist scratches?

    Here are some pictures.

    Might be though the top coat. I got such a great deal and was in a rush I didn't look good at them. Might bite me in the ass.

    The sand blast SHOULD be able to get the majority of those scratches out. Even if the blaster has to pay a little extra attention to those spots. You'll be fine.

    It’s pretty amazing what a good wheel shop and powdercoat pro can do. Although I can’t see the depth I’d bet they will be able to make it work. May cost you extra.

    Just when I thought I got a smoking deal. Always something extra to pay. Definitely worth it to have a nice powder coat job.

    Will do. I won't be able to take them in for a few weeks. But I'll post up after they are finished.

    If the scratches are not deep into the metal or are just coating depth. After sand blasting if there is a deviation in surface smoothness or appearance it can be taken down a bit around the rim itself and re sandblasted before powder is applied. The quality is in the prep.

    Gotcha. The place doing it has been around for 25 years so hopefully they can do it.

    After looking at the photos those scratches don’t look that deep. I think after sand blasting if there is still scratches they can just sand the areas down. This should smooth them out before powder coating. I doubt you will have any major problems.

    I just dropped the wheels off to get powder coated. They said sandblasting the wheels will correct the scuffs. They should be done Thursday and I'll post pictures.

    Went from the powder coat shop to the tire shop. The wheels turned out perfect. Here are some pictures, truck and wheels are dirty. Will take pictures next week when cleaned.

    DANG! I was thinking of selling my TSS wheels for $600 - at that price it may be worth it to just have them coated and move on.

    @Pudge do you know of a good powder coater in the area?

    I'm not sure but I can ask my neighbor. He got some wheels done last year locally

    Here's the receipt. Was another $21 per wheel to get mounted, balanced, and sensors swapped at Big O tires.
