Anyone heard of them powdercoating alloy wheels? I'm wondering how feasible it is with the masking difficulties posed by the rim braking area etc..

cant see it being an issue. just make sure you show the guys what you need masking. any powder coater worth the name should be able to mask a large diameter circle

probably cost less to do the whole wheel.

then use a sanding block to remove the coating fromj the brake surface.
