Looking for a good place for powdercoating wheels near Chicago

I'm looking to powdercoat my 261's and need a reputable shop near Chicago/NW Indiana, cost is not an issue if the work is done right.

Thanks!

I had a shop in Montgomery, IL do mine. Only $300 and they always do a great job (used them in the past for other things as well). Might be a bit far for you though.

WAY old thread revival but, did you use that company? Did they do a good job? I am thinking of getting my 264's powder-coated and need a good recommendation.

Let us know what they quote...I have a reference from another member and will call them this week. I'm looking to coat my winter wheels in addition to my 264's.

maybe we can get a discount if they do ours at the same time? a small "group" discount?

Ok...I spoke to Greg at GT motoring in Crystal lake. The cost is about $385-$400 for matte black or gloss black...depends on the condition of the wheels and I assume other colors are similar in cost. Unfortunately no group buy discount is available and lead-time is one week. Sounds like they have one 3rd party shop handling the coating. Contact Greg @:
