03EXD17 is an unknown quantity at this point
Repair shop because if the rim isn't badly damage your only looking at $40-$60. Then again time is money

Go for powdercoating. Its a lot more durable. In my area you can get a set of wheels media blasted & coated for less than $150.

^^Quick google search of your area yeilded this place. As far as which is better in the long run, I say powder. Power is applied by electrostatic spray, then it is cured (baked in a hot oven). This generally makes it tougher & more abrasion resistant than wet paint.
