Make sure you do a search so you know the potential hazards of powdercoating the stock BBS wheels.

Well, one; the the limited's come with eniki's...but It seems like powder coating would chip off easily, if the wheels where not taken down to raw metal before..but they must do that or else you're better off spray painting them for god sake..but the powder coating proccess is in extreme heat, so I would belive that it would bond dam well to the metal..They do it alot for motorcycle wheels..my 2 cents

Yes I am well aware of it and I am not concerned. Some people on the net think they know a little to much. I am not going to be trackin or rallying the car. Its simply going to be a weekend drivier. My wheels failing on me because of possible powdercoat is the least of my worries, thanks though.

110 a wheel is steep, it shouldnt cost more than 250 bucks for a power coat, if there ligit.

I didn't realize you had a limited without forged wheels - so it is probably not an issue anyway. As for the "people on the internet knowing too much", bbs will tell you that it is not safe to powdercoat their forged wheels.
