Powdercoat it. Extremely durable and pretty cheap in cost. Anodizing would be more costly. Powdercoating will more than likely result in a glossy finish but they probably could do a flat finish. Most wheels are powdercoated due to their durability in any condition.

both paint and powder will add weight... you will never notice as it is miniscule

If you're coating them gold, I'm guessing looks are important, which should rule anodizing out as an option for you. It'll look great for a short time, but it'll fade and wear pretty rapidly. Powdercoating will add weight, but it's nearly indestructible.

And the best bit, is that it can be changed or refurbished as required.

I powdercoat for a living,here is my 02 cents.

-Yes powder coat might add some weight but we're talking grams? Nothing you would even notice.

-Paint sucks for wheels,don't even bother with this option.

-Anodizing is NOT intended for exterior use,IT WILL FADE QUICK IN THE SUN! Its good for moving parts that have tolerances and cant have added thickness.

And powder does not go by paint codes.So if you have some "1098 gold PPG code" it wont matter.And there is literally pages and pages of gold powders available.You're best bet is comparing it to sample pics of different golds.
Thanks from bradp51 and Duck41
