Powdercoating the stock rims?

I am looking into getting a new set of tires and possibly rims for my truck in the somewhat near future but was curious about the possability of just powdercoating the stock rims?? I have a 2000 f250 xlt, so the non fancy aluminum guys(methinks)... So my question is have people had them powdercoated with good results? I would be doing that and going to a 285/75/16 toyo m/t... gotta have the something more aggressive under it!!

you can remove polsihing.. just curious how it looked, my thought was to bead/sandblast it to rough it up and then let it rip.

Its worth a shot.. It might not come out as a smooth powder coat though...

Bead blasting is the way to go. I had some wheels done several years ago and they came out pretty good.
