Sounds like from what Astro is saying I may be better off to look into wheels from a trailer place. As far as cost is concerned. I don't have any experience in doing quality painting. I do like to drive a nice looking rig though. That being the important aspect. (Quality in the long run is important too.)

I agree if you want things to look good I would find a good set of polished wheels, polish them up put some wax on them to help and just repolish them every spring and they will look sharp! Adam's polishes makes an outstanding polish for wheels. It's all I use on my weld 18x10 dune *'s and when I get them shinned up they look as good if not better than chrome wheels. If not every years or so you`ll be repainting them, and powered coating will cost almost as much as buying a new wheel. What size wheel do you have and whats the bolt pattern? I`ll keep my eyes out! Your driven a sweet truck you want that TT to look as sweet also!!!!

It's tucked away in a barn for the season, but they are 5 lug 15" I believe. Swap them babies out then I can clean them up and maybe see about getting some for the boat trailer.
Since no one will probably ever see my boat trailer I'll go ahead and say that I have white rims on the boat trailer too (rust free). One side has circles cut in the wheel and the other side has triangular holes. !!! Must peolple never put 2 and 2 together to notice, but now ya'll know.
