Correct I just need a shop or experienced individual to give me a quote. I prefer someone closer to me. Sorry for all the confusion.

Take them to Motorcycles Unlimited. They have the equipment and experience to take care of your rims.
They will charge a fair price but it will seem to high. It always seems too high to pay for quality work,
But you don't wanna risk fresh powder coat with the cheapest guy you can find.

Well, seeing your location is bw8 and clay.. DO NOT GO TO Absolute Performance on 6/I-10. wildwest honda is a few minutes down... 10/Mason. there's Honda of Houston on 290/west rd. otherwise, discount tire can remove it for you since ur getting it powder coated anyway. reinstallation of tires is a different story AFTER it has been powder coated.

Center stand wont work if both wheels are off the bike..

even with the center stand, the front wheel makes contact with the ground to hold up the bike.

can i assume your powdercoating the wheels on your Zr7s? why? suggest saving that money for stands, gear and maintainance.

Bro, invest in the stands now. Srsly.
Pit Bull brand is great, but if you can't drop that kind of cash, please go to Cycle Gear and buy their rear and front stands for $50 ea.

I am getting them sand blasted and powder coated for free. Only fee is removing and installing tires.
