Repaint / Powdercoat Deep-V Rims

I was wondering if I bought some Deep-V Rims would I be able to repaint them or get them powdercoated a different color.

It might be better to start off with a silver wheel. Powdercoat's not easy to get off, and it's necessary to strip the finish before applying the new color.

Unless you practically got them for free, why not just get the colour you want ?

It would probably cost less to just buy new rims than to strip/powdercoat your old ones.

Google keeps tarck of your searches. Custom tailored.

And yes to what Scrod said. But painting is fun. So if you like projects.

Why buy rims just to paint them? there are plenty of color options out there, for much less than you would spend buying a set and then paying to have them painted/powder-coated. You COULD do it, but keep in mind, the breaking surface would get ****ed up, (unless it was masked during painting, IE extra cost) and it would probably cost as much as the rims. Plus, that **** gets dirty anyway. Get the color you want in the first place and save yourself the hassle/money.

not sure about rainbow/patterns, but Velocity is do custom colors on any of their rims, you just have to wait for shipping from Australia. Call Yellowjersey, they can help.

Why not just contact Velocity directly?

Starting in February, Velocity will be making all rims at their new factory in Florida. Also, a lot of custom finishes are readily available.

Are we going to see a price decrease on rims?

Considering Velocity just spent a **** ton of money to build a new US factory, I doubt it.

Besides, it's not like their rims are very expensive to begin with.
