I did the peel coat on mine about a year ago. If you get up close and personal with the wheel, you can see mistakes and light spots, but I really could care less.
Only took a few hours of my day, and it really wasn't that hard to do...just takes a lot of patience.
On the downside, the powdercoat will take far more abuse than spray on coating.

I found a guy that will powdercoat them for about $50 per wheel. The winter set has been through two winters and still looks great.
