Place to get stock rims painted or powdercoated?

Does anybody know of a good shop in the Edmond/OKC area that could paint or powdercoat a set of 2004 pony package aluminum rims black for under $300? If you know of such a place, could you please post:
1. The name of the shop
2. A phone # if you have one
3. An address
4. Your experience with them or someone you know's experience

Thank you in advance. Btw, any feedback would be appreciated.

I've painted several sets of wheels with spray paint. Just take your time prepping and don't put it on too thick.

Do they turn out good? Did you use clearcoat?

If your gonna spend $ on the wheels it be better to get them anodized, where they negatively charge the wheels and make them adhere to black that way. Doing that will make them last longer than a paint job. If you spend the time prepping the wheels yourself and take the time to spray them yourself than it's only about 40$ for paint, tape and primer. If you do it correctly a spray paint will last over a year with no chips. It isn't very difficult to spray em yourself but it requires patience.

Its a process where the wheel is dipped in acid and corroded to its new state, this prevents any further corrosion, it hardens the wheel as well it permanently changes the wheel color. Ohh one BIG THING, the wheels have to be ALUMINUM. Its much better to get the harder anodized job rather than soft. You would have to find a local shop that will do it, I'm in socal.

My advice is to save a little more and get them anodized if your gonna drop the cash. If your gonna paint them I would say do it yourself. Hope this helped.

Okay, thanks. My friend has done a set of rims before, so I might just paint them considering I'm on a pretty tight budget. But I was just wondering, do they make a matte clearcoat? I was going to have matte black racing stripes painted on, and I think they would look better matching.

Uhh I think the answer is no because it wouldn't be clear. Clearcoat is just paint with no color. I'm not a paint expert so I may be wrong. If you put a good layer of matte paint on you won't need a clear coat.

Okay, because I was planning on matte black racing stripes professionally painted on, but he won't do rims.
