Powder coating alloy rims

I'm considering getting black alloy rims powder coated white. Has anyone powder coated used rims and if so was the finish durable?

durable street or durable off-road?

All of my wheels have been painted with either rattle can or color I can spray in house if that says anything.

This. I have filed down the lips on my wheels and recoated them twice since putting them on. You will be a sad panda when you spend 30-50 dollars a wheel to see them get chipped and scuffed in a month or two.
