I have been informed that hot dipped glavanizing is available locally, price mentioned was approximately $0.40/lb.
Given the choice, would you all recommend having the rear rims hot dipped, or just painted?
Kind of curious. I am figuring that the four rear rims (Jethro and Ellie's) would probably weigh in around 2 or 300 lbs. and even with a minimum $100.00 charge, it would be reasonably inexpensive to have them hot dipped.. What do you all think?

At that cost and for what advantage I think I will stick with the purtier looking cheap paint job.

If that price includes preperation I'd probably go for the hot dip due to durability.

ARE WE TALKING NEW RIMS OR OLDER RIMS THAT HAVE BEEN PAINTED.
ACTUALLY, EITHER WAY I THINK YOU HAVE A UNIQUE IDEA. I CONSIDERED HAVING MY MOWER DECK GALVANIZED. AND THE PLATFORM THAT SUFFERS FROM BATTERIES AND THE ELEMENTS.

my experiment with cold zinc galvanizing paint on the rims didn't turn out like a hot dip job. left the rims basically a dull gray primer look that didn't cut it.
ended up with two new rims, in a nice factory gray enamal. Tucker Tire, good people to deal with.
if your rims are in good condition, i'd consider $.40 /lb i like the look of hot dipped. new rims were $68 plus shipping.
