Question powdercoating new polished alumunimTTII'S

Dont know if its worth the effort, but i thought of having a set of new TTIIs powdercoated clear. im considering this because i hate polishing wheels and the new factory polished finished is as good as it gets. Plus side is obvious: 1> eliminate corrosion
2> reduces cleaning
3> no polishing
4> retain new look.



is there any down side to doing this? has anyone else done this or considered powder coating new wheel clear?

anythoughts?

thx

Only one chance to PC them clear and if it's not done right they will have trash in the clear and could yellow or get damaged from cleaners or road debris, salts etc.

I would just pay to have them polished when you need it done and go with that or have them chromed if your looking to have easy cleaning

I'd either have them clearcoated or try some rattle-can wheel paint they have out now. VHT and Duplicolor make some really good stuff now.
