Powdercoating or Paint?

Hi, I have a 2011 BMW 535xi and i wanted to get my wheels either powdercoated or painted black. I'm not sure which to do. I live in New England so their is snow i have to deal with because i dont plan on buying snow tires and wheels. Has anyone powdercoated? Is it more expensive than paint? Is it more durable to rocks and less scratches? i have also heard that powdercoating puts the wheels in an "oven" to dry them and i have heard that this can weaken the wheel? Thanks
