Getting my wheels refinished

I just got back from Byers Bush Jet coat in Mississauga. I'm getting my wheels stripped and recoated silver (with clear coat). My wheels has scuffs and brake dust baked into the wheels. The shop is located at Dixie + Eglinton area.They have a wall full of color templates that you can choose. I am paying $75 a wheel. Not a bad price at all.If you decide to go, make sure you take the tires off the wheels. I had to go to Wheel + tire zone on Eglinton to take them off.

Location:

1300 Fewster drive (just off crestlawn drive) Dixie + Eglinton

75 seems kinda steep. considering tha randy mentioned something about 30$ a wheel in one of his posts a while back.
I could be wrong tho.

Actually he mentioned $35 bucks a wheel, but that's just powdercoating ontop of the existing paint,white.There is no labour (sandblasting) involved as well as no clear coat. So basically it's half the price.

i didnt say that. Show me where i said that! I didnt know that 35$ a wheel was just powder coating, and 75 is changing the WHOLE colour. Thast why i said that. Obviously changing the WHOLE colour will be more expensive...
