Talking Nipples

No not those nipples. Spoke nipples.

Hi Guys,

I recently purchased some Mid USA spoke wheels and was thinking about powder coating the nipples and hubs. Would this be a problem since they are already chromed? Or would I have spacing issues with the nipples fitting in the rim afterward? Also are there aftermarket anodized nipples out there?

Thanks!

-Paul
