How West Coast Wheels & Calipers Got Started
Our business was born out of a need for quality wheel-reconditioning with the convenience of a mobile service.
Hi, I’m Jason Irby, founder of West Coast Wheels & Calipers (formerly known as OC Wheel Recon).
Back in the mid-90’s I was a vendor on car lots, touching up paint chips and refinishing bumpers on used cars. Along with my brother and brother-in-law, we began experimenting with repairing wheels on used cars because it was a problem that needed solving – no one was performing the service at the customer’s location. We figured out how to repair and refinish wheels very effectively after a few months of research and development. Eventually my original partners went on to other careers, while I stayed with it.
Good thing I did. A few years into my wheel-reconditioning career, I was at a dealership repairing a wheel. One of the technicians had his personal car on a lift with the wheels off and masking tape around the calipers. He had a can of paint in one hand and a small paint brush in the other. He looked over at me airbrushing a wheel. He asked if I could do the same for his calipers. They came out looking pretty good!
That’s when it hit me: What if I could create a durable enough finish to withstand the demanding conditions of brake calipers? So I started experimenting with primers, base coats, and clear coats.
Each set of calipers I painted kept improving, to the point they were looking better than the factory painted calipers – and were more durable. Before long I was customizing calipers and refinishing factory calipers that were chipping and fading because of the heat. I earned a reputation in the industry as the guy who could paint calipers “on the car!” And the rest is history.

Our mission is to make your wheels turn heads.
Don't let your baby endure another day of wheel shame. Our specially trained artists can make your wheels look like they just rolled off the new car lot. Using a series of abrasives, we effectively and safely remove the cosmetic damage, prep the face of the wheels, and duplicate the factory finish to make them look like new again.
Just because your calipers are tucked deep in your wheel doesn't mean they shouldn't have their cameo moment. Bring'em out from the shadows by giving them a POP of color. Our industry-leading proprietary blend of pigments, high-temperature additives, and flex agents ensure your calipers will look better and outlast even manufacturer paint.
You've got a sick set of wheels. And you want to add some flair and draw attention to their unique lines. Wheel pinstriping is the perfect accent for you. The precision pinstriping of our artists deliver that kind of impact you envision, and help you stand out in a crowd. Nothing wrong with creating a little bit of wheel envy, right?
