new wheels or powder coat?

Here is how my Accord Coupe v6 looks like and I wanted to get some ideas on what to do next to it. I like the black rims i have now but they are badly curb washed but also in general the plasti dip is coming off. My dads shop can do powder coating and fixing the rims completely for $90 each. for just a little bit more i feel like i can get nicer rims tho? i have to stay at 18" since i just bought new tires/alignment.

also should i install the mugen style grille or leave this one ? the plastic dip is starting to come off mine

Personally I think new wheels are needed , a lot of people go bagged and that chassis looks great with big wheels such as 19" there's plenty of wheels but you could go 3 piece wheels over $1000 but definitely worth the stance look maybe some coilovers could help stretched tires are a plus unless you like big wheels
