I have a set of SSV rims im looking at painting Black/Satin Black

Should i
A: Get them powdercoated
B: Get a panel beater or realiable source to spray paint them .

Which is a more preferred way, Pro's & Con's, or perhaps should i just paint them myself, if so how would i go about it from preparing them to the final touches.

Also 1 rim has minor gutter rash , what are the best steps to take to sand away the gutter rash to a very bare minimal amount.

All feedback is welcome. Cheers RedSidi

as above, powdercoating is the best option, a lot more durable.
if cost is an issue i have seen rims painted black before that have looked good, i have painted several mates rims using the clean/primer/colour/clear coat system.
