Aluminum...with usually powder for a color and a clear powder over top. Good times 30 minutes per wheel...can be an hour a wheel...bid wisely!

Sure! Just remember the finer the media the longer you spend working on one. Definitely I fine tipping point of worth it/not worth it on some of these wheels.

New camaro wheels are tough to see the value in taking those on as a blaster...

Re: Toyota Titan Rims


The last set of powder coated rims I ended up switching to Starolite, New Age medium grit wasn't cutting it, pun intended. Those were Subaru aluminum rims with powder and clear coats.

You can try to bake the powder coat off before blasting with one of those propane tar/ice melting gun thingys.

Re: Toyota Titan Rims


I've done alot of rims guys,steel and aluminum.
This guy seemed to indicate that they are a special type... Aluminum alloy
I guess im going to do them with the glass that I always used 30/60
he was told by someone that they shouldn't be blasted?
They seem to be a rubber type paint on them.
I did find out that the guy having them blasted, his customer is a long time friend
Growing up. Lol. Small world.
Ill try glass. Fall back plan is soda

Ill post pictures for all following
