If the powder coater doesn't know what they're doing with temperatures they will weaken your wheels.
you really don't know what your talking about, its only baked at 400 degrees Fahrenheit... that's not hot enough change any strength on any metal
Some alloys can be affected by that temp and if it's baked too long it could damage as well
