    Hi all I was just wondering if anyone has refinished there own wheels. I have a set of Steeda Ultralites that I have started but I am having a problem finding a good stripper everything that I have tried won't touch the paint that is on it. Could it be powder coated? If anyone can help it would great.

    Thanks

    Do you have anyone in your area that does media blasting?If you do maybe you can get them to do your wheels for little money if they are blasting something using the same material.

    Unfortunatly no one here does blasting with plastic beeds, from what I have been told by the places that do refinish wheels (@ about 150 a wheel) that is what you have to use glass beed and sand could and or would damage wheel by pitting it.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    They're powdercoated. Your best bet is to sand'em up and get the scuffs outta them. Them have'em painted and clear coated.
