I'd leave them over night I've never done it, i just figure that if the guy who rebuilt my wheels put the barrels in the oven to expand the holes then a diy could put the bolts in the freezer . But don't tighten the bolts right away just put them on tighten them affter they return back to room temperature .

Well the freezing process is just for fittment purposes , so you want to do it affter refinishing them right before you put them back on the wheels

Im doing the centers gloss black and barrels have been polished. There are a lot of good powder coaters. Look for one that is close to your house and you'll see whether there good or not.
I brought them into Metal Coaters.

Im getting a deal because it's a friend. Usually between $200-$400 for a really good job, but it all depends on color too.
