Do it yourself. Sand em down, and use a rattle can and some clear coats.

i know if you have it powder coated it willl be really pricey but if you do it yourself, probably like $20

just wet sand your wheels with very fine sandpaper like 1500 or 2000 grit till they're super smooth and paint away with black wheel paint

I just got mine powdercoated semi gloss blak. It only cost me 25 per rim. I wouldn't rattle can it unless you want that stuff to peal. a couple of rock chips would do the trick. only bad partis you have to unmount and remount you tires. no big deal
