what are you running now?
Ikon 26x2.35
i had my g zeros set up tubeless for a couple of months they worked fine for me. they kept burping in the skate park but i think any tire would have
were they white walls? My whitewalls would only hold for about 3 minutes. solid black single compound g zeros would be a different story im guessing.

Traditional 2.4 g zeros hold air tubeless but burp if you push them. I had to go to tubes in mine.

I want build a new wheelset for my bike but i want your opinion about this build:
-rims notubes flow MK3
-spokes dt competition
-hub hope pro 4 ss
i know this hub is used for trials but i wonder if the rims will be strong enough when i do 360...

There's plenty of people who have that wheelset build, and mk3's will be strong enough.

I just checked out a local powdercoat place, made sure they were comfy with bike frames, they seemed to know their stuff and they killed it.

Ya, definitely want to make sure they know a bit of knowledge with bike frames, taping process is pretty important so you don't get paint in important places that it shouldn't.

What do you think would look better/be lighter I don’t want to be adding more than a pound onto my bike with paint. And if they are same is powder coat a more durable/ nicer finish?

Powdercoat is about 100 grams (approx), liquid paint is 70 grams (approx). Depending on how many clear coats typically powdercoat is more durable. Powdercoat can have a nicer finish because of the baking process giving it an even layer, unless you really spend the money on someone to spray it properly, but prep is king, if it isn't prepped right, it'll come out like shit. Anodizing is an option as well for saving weight, but fades faster, and rawing your frame saves the most weight.
