    better to paint. powdercoating potentially weakens the metal if done wrong. OE wheels are painted, why not just do it the OE way?

    Paint tends to chip easier, no?

    On the positive side, it should be cheaper than powdercoating.

    technically powder coating is more durable. You plan on curbing your wheels? paint or powdercoating don't take well to curbs equally.

    Anyways, if you want a shop who can do either I'd recommend http://truwheel.com/

    Talk to Mike and let him know what you want and what he'd suggest.
