Which wheels? If it's a small area, you could get some pinstriping/sign paint from Eastwood Company and a pin striping brush and do it yourself.

I gathered from your message, you were talking about doing small detail work, kinda like this, no?

what i would do is tape around the area you want to paint, scuff it with a scuffing pad or sandpaper, spray some etching primer, spray your choice of spray paint color, spray clear, then wet sand and buff. i would think that would be sufficient for small parts on a rim.

powder coating is really nice, but if any part of it starts to crack or peel, it's contagious. Before you know it, all of it will peel off.
