Powder Coat

Powder Coating Service

Powder Coating provides our wheel customers with a durable finish which resists cracking, peeling, fading, or marring. Powder Coating offers excellent uniformity without sags, drips, or other surface irregularities.

Extremely abrasion, corrosion and chemical resistant, powder coating provides a finish which is superior to most other organic coatings and looks great with little or no maintenance. Coated parts clean up with soap and water. No polishing is ever required.

Wheel Straightening
  We Can Straightening Your Wheels!

While custom wheel rebuilding is limited mostly to steel wheels, Stockton can straighten forged, spun, cast or billet aluminum wheels. Some wheels may be too mangled to be straightened, but you'd be surprised at the wonders Stockton can work. Stockton's special fixture allows for checking of center section trueness as well as hop (egg-shaped) and wobble (excessive side-to-side run-out).

Not only can Stockton Wheel remanufacture custom steel wheels for nearly any application on a built-by hand, one-by-one basis, but it can also build new steel wheels to your specs and straighten nearly any wheel that's been bent, tweaked, or crunched.

Wheel Widening


Stockton Wheel cuts the center out of the steel wheels you provide, or the company will use its cores, when available. Often a center from a 14-inch rim can be used to build a 15-incher using Stockton's new outer wheel piece. Results, custom wheels just for you!

The center is tapped into place to provide the backspacing specified by the customer. Because of outer wheel piece design, there is a range of backspacing each size rim can have (see backspacing chart). Then the wheel is checked with a dial indicator to be sure the center is installed "true" to the outer piece.

Once the center is positioned to Stockton Wheel's strict quality standards, it can be welded in place. Harley welds a small area at a time and checks the wheel with a dial indicator when finished to be sure the heat didn't distort his precision work.

Now the wheel can be painted or powder coated and is ready to roll down the road. Besides sneaking a slightly larger tire under the rear of late-night race cars, Stockton also fits plenty of Pro Street Rods with "Big 'N' Little" steel rims for a stylish look.
