    Default Another Z noob sob-story

    I live in medical area, always like the Z finally got one
    bought a 08z base 6spd in PPW two weeks ago.
    since then i have removed a dummy Gforce chip that was giving me CEL codes.
    unfortunately I just discovered the source of a 70mph vibration in a rear wheel thats warped beyond repair, I have stockies that have been powdercoated black, need a new stock rear rim for 08, and the name of a recommended powder coating place. or a cheap set of black aftermarket rims. seemingly plagued by little crap on an otherwise good ride

    Try this place: http://www.fixrim.com/sanantonio.php
    I had a bent rim on my Altima and they fixed it along with powdercoating for about $140.

    I had the rim repair guys look at the wheel, they said they cannot fix it because it is warped at the center, perhaps from the powder coating process!!
    So I am back to looking for a stock rear wheel and a way to make it black!!
    Any suggestions, I guess Id be up for a set of allready black rims is price is good!

    yeah, i heard powder coating cast aluminum wheels can wrap them during the heat/curing process. but i think they have come up with a low heat curing for certain powdercoats.
