Central mass Powdercoating. 9783651700 ask for jeff. He did a set of 19's for me 4 years ago and I think it was $500. Finish was perfect and dust fell off.

I would advise against powdercoating wheels. The finish can chip during installation of tires if the installer hits the rim of the wheel (has happened to 2 different sets of wheels I had years ago). I recommend to only paint wheels.

Paint is applied using a paint gun and is sprayed on the car (think of how a body shop paints a car). Powdercoat is basically using a positively charged powder that is applied to a negatively charged wheel, then baked.

Did you not yet hear about plastidip?
I kinda liked the easy apply & removal part. And whole lot of colors.

I know this is an older post but I had my stock 157 style wheels RECONed at RIMPRO in Tewksbury, MA. They repair, powder-coat and clear coat the wheels for roughly $185 per wheel or less depending on how much damage is done to the wheel. This is an estimate and includes the dismounting of tires/ hardware and re-mounting of everything and balancing.

My wheels were minor curb rashed. Wheels came out beautiful and they only require two days to turn them around for you.

You must have had a poor quality powdercoat. With mine I could pretty much hit it with a hammer and not chip it.

Rimpro has been in business for a long time, and I have personally had over 15 sets of wheels done. They went through a new ownership a couple years ago, and the quality has been just the same. The two main guys that do the refinishing and repairs have been there for almost 10 years. I understand if you may have had a bad experience, as I had one wheel bubble on me. I brought it down, they took a look, said "no worries" and had it redone for me the next day. Great guys to deal with. They are the best in the area in my opinion. To each their own though!

I too have had great experience with RimPro, had 2 wheels on E90 refinished 2 years ago, looked like new.
