Stock wheels powder coated?

I have a new tomos st and wanted to if the wheels that come stock are powder coated or is it just a standard paint job. I ask because I want to get them painted black and a local auto paint shop said they won't paint over a powder coat because it won't bind well. I also don't want to spend the money on a more expensive painting process....just want black wheels and apparently 1977mopeds informed me tomos discontinued the standard 6 star wheels. Bummer.

They are powder coated from Tomos. Sandblast them then re-coat.

paint won't last long. stripper don't pull it off (unless you'r real patient and at it with a wire brush and you're OK with ruining your clothing skin and future children.)

gotta sand blast and then paint or better yet sand blast and re coat as mentiond above
