Re: [DML] Tires won't hold air/powdercoating

I had mine powdercoated locally when I changed out all four of my  original 
NCT's. You are correct that if they won't hold air... they're junk. The  
rims have to be "cooked" prior to powdercoating, which if not done properly, 
can  give a slightly bubbly, orange peel finish. You might also find you have 
some  corrosion, and have to replace a wheel. That said, I'm very pleased 
with the  results. Some doofus PO had spray painted mine, and they were 
peeling. If I had  it to do over, I'd let a vendor do it, I think. Check with Don 
at DMC in Garden  Grove CA, he has some really great looking polished ones, 
too. I'll be  interested to see the answers about tire replacements. Mine 
are nearly 10 years  old, and while they look great, they'll need to be 
replaced soon. (I very rarely  drive hiway speeds with it.) I can't get another 
set of Yoko's to replace the  ones I've got on there now.
