Hey boogdaddy I plan on doing the same thing to my wheels when it comes time to put some new rubber on. If done properly, powdercoating actually improves the strength of the object it is being applied to. From a molecular level standpoint, when heated the metal expands and voids in the metal itself actually get bigger, the paint then fills the void and when it is cured essentially is part of the metal's lattice structure. So basically you can't go wrong with it as long as you find a reputable powder-coater. Just make sure you remove anything from the wheel you don't want painted or damaged (i.e. bearings and so forth).
I say go for it. :thumb:
