I had a set of polished wheels once and swore that from then on, I would either have chrome or painted...
However, now I find myself considering a set of Mickey Thompson Classic Locks in the polished finish. So, I was wondering, short of polishing them all the time, does anyone have any good tricks to keep them nice?
I was considering:
1) Plasticoating them in the winter to keep salt off - anyone ever do that? If so, how did the wheels look plasticoated and after you peeled it off?
2) Using POR-15 GLISTEN PC and forgetting about them?
3) polish and wax?
4) Clear Powdercoating?
Comments: Contact the manufacturer as they may already have a protective coat so any polishing will destroy the finish. I personally wouldn't run a polished rim, even coated, in winter conditions where salt is present.
I have had great results from powder coated black wheels in winter salt conditions.
