Question Powder coating

im going to powder coat a couple things for my 700xx and wanted to see what everyone thought about it if i do. Do you think it will hold up? Im going to buy the chivalry bumper, GNCC wide grab, and Pro Armor nerfs. Im also going to take my stock wheels and have them powder coated black (easy way out). The only problem i see with this is that if i get a textured finish, then my wheels may leak. Does anyone else think this may be a problem or do you think it will be ok? Any help is appreciated, thanks, Chris.

i had my rims PC'ed black with somewhat of a textured finish and havent had any problems. They havent chipped any but get "smudged" after hitting various trees while ridding.

If you get the parts PC'ed just make sure to prep them really good, ie good scotch bright and degreaser wash before you send them off.

IMO, PC'ing is the way to go vs just painting parts.
