Painting Wheels

I looked through some of the sponsor threads but didn't find any that had samples of custom painted wheels. I'm looking to get my wheels on my V-Star 1300 painted BLACK with RED lining on the rim.


So my questions are as follows:
1) How much does a job like this normally cost?
2) Is it easier to just use "tape" for the painted look & save money?
3) Is it recommended to paint wheels at all?

powder coating is better. its tougher. id bet if you painted it, itll strip off if you change tires. i got my wheels done at pnp cycles.. its so nice.

do not use paint, there is a reason you dont see any custom "painted" wheels, they all get them done in powdercoating.
