Lot's of people powder coat the alloy rims. Nothing to it.

I think Anodizing them would be really cool. But rock rash would be a bummer.

I wouldn't powder coat the wheels if you 4wheel with them. I powder coated the wheels on our Bimmer black and few weeks ago I was installing a bigger brakes on it and one wheel fell of my hand and landed hard on the floor and it peeled the coating, and since then the spot got bigger and bigger and now it looks ugly.

As for cost it was $75 ea and it took them 2 days to do all 4.

$15 per wheel here in Portland, they hold up nice to rock rash if done well.
