powder coating does look good and is very tough,much harder than spray paint.

It would cost double of just buying a new set of rims and tires. When powder coating the factory wheels, you will have to remove the tires, ($20-$40 each), then pay the powder coater for the services, about $300-$500 PER WHEEL! and the pay to have the tires remounted. You can get an awesome set of white wheels and tires that look MUCH better than factory wheels for about $1000.
