Powdercoating

How much does it usually cost to powder coat wheels? Is it worth doing that over buying new rims altogether? Is it durable enough?

It's worth it if the new wheels are different sizes causing you to get new tires them you're looking at $1200 for new wheels and tires

125 a wheel? I could get the rims I want on AM for 129.99 a rim haha. I have the 10th anniversary rims on it right now but I don't like the machined look.

I would bet 10th anniversary Cobra rims would pay for your new ones if they are oem

They are OEM. How much do you think I could get? They have new tires on them.

I couldn't even offer an educated guess. Everything oem svt related carries a premium. Everything oem termi related carries a premium as well. If they are in good shape they should pay for your rims and some tires. There isn't a set of oem 10th anniversary wheels on eBay currently. They have to have value. It's the oem rims off of everyone's favorite Mustang..
