Give it some time, I seen some painted wheels turn to crap after a while. Powder coating is not expensive.

I have been painting cars in a body shop for years, and all i can say is.... Its all in the prep work, if you preped them good they should hold up :-) For example : If i prep a 70k BMW bad, and put 2055 ppg clear ($400+ per gallon) on it "it will peel in no time. If i put ppg Value Pro ($66 a gallon) on a cobalt that i preped perfect, it will last for years :-) Hats off to you for great prep work, and btw, the look sick as hell...
