Persnally, having just bought (and installed) a set of 18" Blades, newly refurbed in Anthracite, I go the refurb \ powder coating route every time ...
Leaves a perfect finish, and you can get a unique \ custom colour ...
Any future damage - just bead blasting \ possible filling \ recoating - new wheel ! ...
