You can touch up plastidip with some gas and a nitrile glove. Much easier than redoing the whole wheel...

If you can afford the powder coat, go for it.

I'm a big fan of plastidip, ive had my oem wheels plastidipped for over a year and a half now and they held up fine, until i just had new tires put on and the installer peeled them at the edges. So now it's a pita to pull all the wheels, re-dip them, etc.

IMO if i was going with aftermarket wheels i'd pay the extra and have them powdercoated.
