You may also want to read the facts about powder coating and learn something real.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Powder_coating Powder coating is way more durable than paint.

I bought my car in april of 2007 and had all four wheels painted black for 100 buck in may of 2007. They came out great and no problems with fading or anything. I no longer have then on my car as of about 8 months ago but the guy i sold them to still has them and they still look great.

painted

I have decided to go with the powder coating on my 18" factory rims. I called several shops in the area and the cheapest shop I found with a good reputation quoted me $80-$90 per rim. I know its still far cheaper than after market rims but Am I getting screwed here?
