I end up powdercoating over galvanizing for most customer stuff, or at the least using a 25% zinc powder. Galvy does not add that much weight if done correctly, which is hard to achive with most galvy shops that are more acustomed to fence posts. All depends on the desired end result and what the intended use is.

Don't bother galvanizing the wheels.
