68.5 Mustang Fastback paint or powercoat wheels

I have a 68 mustang fastback cj that i am restoring and am trying to save some money so I want to restore them. Would it be best to repaint or powercoat the vintage 45 wheels. Somebody before me tried to paint the wheels and got overspray on the back of the wheel. I have tried everything to get the overspray off the aluminum. Any help would be very helpful. I am attaching some pic of the wheels.

try a clay bar. They are highly effective at removing overspray.
