    Hope that doesn't happen to mine. I had mine done this summer. I can't see this hurting unless the wrong temp was used and it changed the property of the rails.

    you are correct. mine were probably to hot. I did find alot of info from BBS wheels explaining why they paint their wheels.

    I was always told that it was better to get aluminum stuff anodized vs. powdercoated.

    Maybe that will eliminate some of the issue?
