Powder coating is more durable if the correct powder is used. You want to make sure an acrylic based powder is used. As an example, I know a shop (not anywhere near you) that does it for $45.00 for 15" wheel, 50.00 for a 16" and 55.00 for 17", etc (in stock colors). It's not cheap but the the results are usually worth it.
