    Restoring motorcycle wheels spray painted or powder coated.

    Is it better to have them spray painted or powder coated and what is the best way to remove the old finish.
    Mate stick to the facts not a fantasy.

    Powder coat. Talk to the powder coater about removal of old substrate.

    a good paintjob is repairable...
    Do you remember the good old days before the internet?

    when arguments were only entered into by the physically or intellectually able.

    Don't know whether it's true but I've been told that it's easier to colour match paint than powdercoat; not all colours available via powdercoat.

    Yep not a lot of colours in powder coating so if you want two different colours then Id paint them.

    There's a big difference between industrial powder coating and custom powder coating. https://www.blingcustomcoatings.com.au/

    The other alternative is Cerakote, much harder wearing than either as it apparently bonds to the metal at a lower level as opposed to just sitting on top Not cheap and is mainly used for firearms but there may also be people who could do your wheels

    Cerakote colours
