Powder coating near Central Mass

I'm planning on having wheels powder coated in a bright orange and was wondering if anyone had any experiences with shops that do this or know of any in general that you would recommend. I'm also open to buying wheels (18x8) that are already orange if anyone should know of any. Thanks!

why do you want them powder coated?

I know an affordable place in worcester where they paint right. 2 stage in a paint booth.

Powder coat. Not a clue.

I wanted powder coating for durability. I always worry that painted wheels will chip and then look really bad.

I've never powder coated wheels.

The ones that are painted with good quality paint have hold really well in our winters.

I had cheap TSW rims and after 2 winters they started peeling. Cheap stuff.

There is a place in Clinton that does good powder coat work. They've done quite a bit of piping for usin the past.
