Sandblasting SRT8 wheels?
I just picked up a set of OEM SRT8 wheels off craigslist. I want to powder coat them black and my father has the ability to powder coat them at work. I just have a few questions on the prep work. Do thes wheels need to be sandblasted before powder coating? and Are these chrome or polished aluminum? I know alot of people get theses wheels powder coated and i am just looking for a little help. Thanks

If they are stamped alco db they have a coating on them if not they should be polished..

Yep they are polished aluminum with a clear coat. They need to be sand blasted prior to PC

The power coating process is very cool ,I've always been interested in the process and chrome plating.

The shop you choose to do the powder coating will strip them before they pc them. Generally they use a method alot finer then using sand, ususally walnuts or plastic. I wouldn't sand blast if I were you.
