After having no luck finding a pair of even semi-reasonable gold wheels for my black ST4s, I'm considering powdercoating mine instead. Much less expensive to do than buying new wheels, but how do they hold up if you get a good outfit to do them? I'm not very hard on my bike, so I would hope that they'd stay nice for quite a while? If you've done this and recommend it, what should this operation cost for a quality job?

I looked at paint chips yesterday...

and the gold sample was a metallic finish. It matched the forks and gold on the disks, but was definitely a metal flake, and I can't decide how that would look on the rims. What do you guys think, too much bling? The color was good, but it would be pretty sparkly in the sun!

The color is pretty close...

however, I don't care for the 3 spoke wheels. I like the stockers much better than the 3 spoke, and would love to have a set of the Y configuration 10 spoke wheels. Thanks for asking, I appreciate the thought anyway. I've about decided to go ahead and get mine powdercoated in the metallic gold when my front tire is due for replacement.
