Sorry if there are topics covering this however i need a set of rotas refurbed and im a bit cautious over getting them powdercoated due to the fact of them needing to go into an oven

If anyone could shed some light on this would be much appreciated ;)

I'd send an email direct to Rota uk and see what they respond with. Although you'll probably guess the answer (no!).
Alternatively the other way is to refurb them without powder coating and just paint them normally.

i have powdercoated a set of 4 rota torque three times since i got them and they ended up just fine each time. Just be careful not to get the area that goes on the hub powdered. Some shops are doing it and it affects equilibration till the point you can't make it and if going on track the paint between the hub and wheel will melt and loosen the wheel. Happened to me.
