Clearing/Coating Polished Wheels?

At some point in the next few months, I'm due for a new set of tires. Since I have always hated my 17's, I'm going to a set of aftermarket 16's.

The set I have my eye on are polished. These are going to be wheels on a DD truck that will see sand, snow, salt, etc etc etc....washing them every day isn't an option.

I know I could always powdercoat, but I just want them clear. What are my options for clearing wheels? And approx what can I expect to spend for a shop to clear them for me?

Re: Clearing/Coating Polished Wheels?

I would use PPG Cerami-clear. The local shop I use...charges just $50 extra for cerami-clear. They tell me the cerami-clear package is enough to do 2 bumpers and a hood. So a $50 pack would do 4 wheels easy. I have it on my bumpers, grill, mirrors and door moldings.....and soon on my hood. Its so hard once dried...they have to use a special sandpaper to sand it.

Re: Clearing/Coating Polished Wheels?

im sure its not very expensive to just get them cleared, most repair shops will repair wheels and clearcoat them for like 100 a wheel so it would be even cheaper to just get cleared at a wheel shop. You could also look into a clear that is put on by powdercoat. I know the factory oem srt wheels are done with this process but I havent looked into it at all but it is alot stronger than spray clear.
