Powder coated semi wheels, who's got em?

Trying to figure out my next move, either get these wheels polished professionally to have a good base to maintain, or have them powder coated black and leave the center caps and lug covers chrome. Post up your wheels, opinions...
Thanks in advance.

How about having them polished, then clear coated?

Has anyone used that armor all wheel protectant? Thinking about trying that on my polished 19.5's before the roads get nasty this winter, vs. using plasti dip like I was planning to do.

Good question how long does it last, all winter and I am in, otherwise plastidip is the direction I am going. I rotate my 19.5's twice a year and the front ones take a beating from the rotor dust and grime build up. Rustoleum Peel Coat looks like it may work pretty well, anyone tried that?
