Not sure how true it is, but I've heard horror stories about powdercoating alloy wheels. From what I've gathered, the heating (and cooling) of the alloy wheels during the powdercoat process needs to be carefully controlled. Otherwise it can lead to a weakening of the metal in the wheels. Knowing a little about the characteristics of metals, I do find this scenario very plausible.
