But is powder coating not more wear resistant then paint for something like wheels? I'm not trying to knock hydrodipping just trying to understand what's going to wear better.

Well it all just depends on what your looking for, I am not as familiar with powder coating and I assume if you hit a curb one is just as likely to scratch as the other.

The only time you have to worry about powder coating a wheel is if it's forged. Applying heat (when you bake the wheel) can cause it to weaken and eventually crack.

That's interesting. I just called Jese over at Its Not Paint, and he said they only bake the wheels for 18 mins at 350 degrees. He said he has never had a forged allow wheel crack on him, and I trust him. I was reading a corvette forum where they were debating it and some said it was possible and some said it had never happened to them...so who knows. I'm still gonna take them to get done, and if they crack, then I guess I will be able to tell you guys for sure. I look up that hydro dipping...way too cool.

I know a person that cracked there CTS-V wheel. I'm not saying it's going to happen i'm just simply saying that anytime that you reheat something forged it weakens it........

Plus those "corvette guys" are idiots...........lol.
