Default Powder-coating

I have the stock 5 spoke wheels on my 2003 FX4, and i was thinking about having them powder coated black. Does anyone have any thoughts or have this done already. If anyone has done this some pics would be nice. Thanks.

A shop near me does 16 inch rims for $100 in black chrome each... but thats a chrome wich is more expensive. I would guess a typical cost would be around $80-$100 a piece. The place near me has low prices.
