It depends on the shop, type of powder being used, etc. The last shop I used charged me 175/wheel, but that was a 2 stage powder. So it had quite a bit of pearl to it.


That shop has since closed (not for bad reasons, and he was a friend of mine), so I have started using a new guy. The wheels for the RC, and for my track bike he charged me $90 each. And the work is great.
Track bike wheels


just remember the additional costs.
New wheel bearings
tire dismount
wheel bearing/ rotor removal
wheel bearing/ rotor install
tires mount/balance
