Honestly, for my area, $200 sounds about right, figure $50 a wheel. Even if they are in perfect condition, the coater still has to prep them. (Remove any existing coating, sand blast, etc.) Applying the powder is the easy part, prep is what takes the most time. Figure the powder itself is not expensive at all, it is all the labor involved, someone has to be paid to do it.
I have found the price of powder coating varies greatly depending on where a person lives. If you have called every place that powder coats around you and they are giving you the same price for the same work, then that is what it costs in your area. Other option would be to ship them somewhere, but I am sure once you add in shipping to them and back, I would be willing to bet it would be more expensive.
