Paint or Powdercoat rims?

I have a set of chrome rims and would really love the look of black rims/hubs - chrome spokes. Unfortunately, the cost of having them torn down and reassembled puts that out of reach.
I was wondering if anyone has painted/powder coated even plastic coated their wheels?
Any tips, tricks or things to stay away from?

I remember reading about a guy with a vintage beetle, had it painted and had them paint the chrome bumpers the same color as the car.

First time he washed the car the paint came right off the bumpers, and he was livid, because they did what he told him to do...

I have no experience with painting over chrome, just that its not trivial - Im sure someone else here does.
