Paint vs. Powdercoat
I recently fell into a killer deal on some wheels. The only problem is, they are silver and I want black. My Jeep is a daily driver so the wheels will see the highway and the trail. I know it is easier to touch up paint than it is powder but I hear powder is tougher overall. Anyways, would love to hear thoughts on which one would be the better choice.

I would say for they best shine I would go with paint, JMO. Durability go with the powdercoat.

I knew powdercoat would cost more. What have some of you paid? And yes, I realize it will be dependent upon area, exact finish, color, so on and so forth, just trying to get a ballpark.
