    Looking to replace my bent Hero Blue wheels. I am going to have them straighted and use for track days only. I hear once they straighten the wheels it screws up the powder coat.

    yeah,I'll be like $240 into the rims before the strip and powder coat.
    How bad was your paint job after they straighten them?
    I am considering useing my rims after I have them straighten for track use only.
    I do need hero blue rims, so I can keep my street bike sexy.

    Didnt set me back at all as I own the powder shop. I was fooling with different powders and thickness levels to try and duplicate the Hero Blue and eventually came out with this
