I'm not sure where you guys are located, but I just so happen to do some powder coating in the Baton Rouge area in Louisiana... Just thought I'd throw that out there. I have powder coated several sets of wheels for quads and streetbikes alike. I haven't had any issues with chips and scratched in the powder, other than some serious curb rash type deals. Just wanted to throw that out there! I'm doing mine soon. I'll post some pics.
