Which is best for painting wheels: UV or InfraRed curing process or Powder Coating??

Hi, thinking about getting my 20" wheel colour painted black on M5. My dealer recommends a company that uses UV light for the drying process, but others are saying UV is the cheaper and quicker route...the results will not last more than 18 months - 2 years. Apparently infra red light is the way to go, takes longer but worth it...

Alternatively Powder Coating which is suppose to be better than both UV / Infra Red (wet paints)...?

Anyone know about this, had any experience or offer advice?

Thanks in advance.
