I've done both on different sets of wheels.

Powder is more durable if you do all the way to the lip by the bead.

If you rattle can it with the Wheel Paint available at the auto parts you should be fine. Might just have to touch it up if they ever mount/dismount tires and it gets chipped.

Did mine a month ago. Sanded them lightly and put on 3 coats flat black and about 3 of semi gloss. No issues so far but it hasn't been long.
