Very doubtful Honda spent the money on powder coating instead of just paint. They use good enough paint but money is King you know.
Powder coating lasts better, is much stronger and cleans easier than any paint I'm aware of. I've sent out several wheels to be powder coated. The surface is so slick that tire irons can easily slip while installing the tire.
If you intend to have your wheels powder coated be POSITIVE the people doing the job UNDERSTAND what parts CAN NOT be coated. (Bore for bearings, close tolerances and such). The coating is too thick for those places.
