I would go with galvanising, but not powder coating. Powder coating chips pretty easily and cannot be touched up.
My personal preference would be galvanizing, and then you get a paintable rubber coating, unfortunately I can't remember the stuff's name, or bitumen underbody sealant.

100% correct, the powdercoating has started chipping, going to maybe polyurethane the bottom of them.
