Should I powder coat or paint my 20" 214 wheels?

Any suggestions? Pros and cons on both?
I am going black maybe hyper silver like those Infiniti wheels......any other suggestions?

I'd say powder coat - I have the exact same rims, and went that route. If you are thinking painting, I'd say plasti dip - easier to maintain and touch up.

Powdercoat is more durable but just make sure you do it at a shop that knows what they are doing...too much heat for too long can weaken the wheels.

+1 on plastidip. It is easy to do and you can always reverse it if you change your mind.

+1 more on Plastidip. It's cheap, easy to do, and easy to reverse. Plus, if you don't like the color choice, you can just as easily do it in another color until you find the right one.
