Marchesini Wheels

I picked up some a few days ago for my bike and noticed mine appear to be painted or powdercoated and other sets I saw today on a motard were anodized.

Is this typical, coated vs. anodized?

The gold mag ones look anodized. Could it be the difference between the al and mag ones?

From my understanding the ones I picked up are aluminum. The spoke area is a "T" shape and the Mags are an "H" shape.

Both these wheels looked to be aluminum but I guess it could be a difference of the alum. vs mag. and they both had the same spoke shape.

Weigh 'em to find out which ones you have... (mag or alum)

Dunno on the finishes, but on the website they show a set of repsol orange wheels (don't think you can annodize that color)

I have the forged mags in gold. The only way to tell the difference between those and the aluminums are that the mags are a little sharper to all the edges. the mags are painted and look dull compared to the the aluminum.

I would stick to the aluminum wheels if I were to do it again. cheaper, looks more bling and better for long term road use.

btw here are some of the weights of wheels to consider

FRONT WHEELS NO DISCS
Blackstone carbon fiber 4.85 lbs
Dymag carbon fiber 5.6 lbs
Dymag mag center carbon rim 7.8lbs
Hi Point forged aluminum 8.2lbs (unofficial weight)
Marchesini cast mag 7.7 lbs
Marchesini forged aluminum 8 lbs
Marchesini forged mag 7 lbs
Marvic Penta II 7.5 lbs
PVM cast mag 9 lbs
PVM forged aluminum 10 lbs
PVM forged mag 7 lbs
PVM Colorline 5 spoke two piece 14 lbs
OZ forged aluminum 7.75 lbs


REAR WHEEL WITH DISC AND CUSH DRIVE
Blackstone ?
Dymag carbon fiber 13 lbs
Dymag mag center carbon rim 12.8 lbs
Hi Point forged aluminum 16.3 lbs (unofficial weight)
Marchesini cast mag 12.7 lbs
Marchesini forged aluminum 16 lbs
Marchesini forged mag 13 lbs
Marvic Penta II 13.6 lbs
PVM cast mag 14.25 lbs
PVM forged aluminum 17.75 lbs
PVM forged mag 12 lbs
PVM Colorline 5 spoke two piece 6.25" 25.5 lbs
OZ forged aluminum 16.5 lbs
