Question Should I plastic dip or powder coat?

I got some new wheels caps and new set of Pirelli P-Zero tires. Should I plastic dip the wheels black or leave them alone?

Here is what the car looked before the cap and tires.

Plasti dip will give you a good idea of how they would look black but I'm not sure about the durability for long term. Anyway I think your car looks good either way.
