Default Question on redoing Rims

Well as some of you kno i got a set of 18s pretty cheap on Craisglist a couple months back. Well there not in the best of shape. 2 of the especially have the chrome fading away.

Question is would it be better/ cheaper to do which of the following:
1) re-chrome plating
2) Poweder coating black
3) painting them 2-tone to match my truck when it gets painted this spring. ( i kno it will be 2-tone top black but unsure on bottom color, If i painted rims the lip would be whatever color i decide to paint the bottom half of my truck.)

If i got them powdercoated black is there any way to just re plate the lip chrome?,


Also if painting them is a option what are the necessary steps in prepping and painting them?

over here, a set of wheels 17-20" cost $200 at a reputable shop, if you shop around maybe $150, MAYBE.
