I got the 04 Red/Black RR and i think it would look sick with a red front rim.. How much does powdercoating cost.. just rough price for a front wheel..


I just think with the Red front wheel and the black rear it would look pretty cool.. im gonna photoshop it and check it out as well.. but i was just curious if any of you know what it would cost for a front tire to be powdercoated red.

i hope you mean fron rim (not tire) :lol2:

kioken600RR got his rims powdercoated red (looks nice!) The thing with red is they will most likely do it in two stages. First a white base, then the red. Of course, this will cost more. I would say about $125 or so, depending on quality. We get our rims done from this place:

Top notch quality!

yeah. i meant rim..

that is a mistake i make all the time calling tires wheels and rims ...

tire is the rubber part, rim is the steel/alum part and wheel is the whole thing..


but yeah i meant rim.. How much for the rim...

i hate those colored tires.. they look like CRAP!!

does anyone have some highish resolution pics they can post up of their 600rr's with powedercoated rims? (preferably black RR's)

I am toying with the idea of making the rims red on a black 03 RR, like dark red, and have the lowers paited black also, and match the rims with a subtle sticker scheme..... what do you guys think?

I dont even have the bike yet.... but since the thread came up.....plus when i get new tires ill take the opportunity to do it, if i do it....

that's pretty much how kioken600rr's bike looks. black '03 with painted lowers and red rims. i'm sure he'll be glad to snap some pics for you. hit him up!

here in GA there's a motorcycle specific paintshop that will powdercoat your wheels for $85 apiece - they'll remove the tires, bearings, etc. You just have to removet the discs.

My RR is black with a silver belly and my wheels have some rock nicks in the painted surface so I'm considering a flat grey/silver powdercoat on the wheels that would match the silver bellypan and engine cases. I'm clueless with photoshop, maybe someone can post up what that might look like.

thanks
