Stove Enamel v's Powder Coated


After a bit of advice/views from the masses based on the title above.
Really need to get my wheels done, nothing fancy just original colour, or near as damn it.

They are the 18" Spoke type alloys found on a Brera [The nightmare ones to clean]

I've been quoted 50 per wheel + VAT for stripping , and stove enamel the alloys, that also includes new valves, balancing, remounting using SealFit.

Is Stove Enameling better than Powder Coating or not ... I'm looking for durability more than anything as i'm up and down the motorway almost everyday, so they do get some hammer

... appreciate your thoughts

I'd probably opt for standard paint and lacquer with powder coating as a second choice.

Stove-enamelling is fine and provides a very hard surface, but it can be brittle. That being the case it can and will chip. It's then a real pain to touch-in. I had it done on an old motorbike frame and even though it was a good job it wasn't as durable as a well-applied paint.
