Wondering if anyone has ever done that? I have the M/T classic II wheels and they are polished but are a pain to clean especially during the winter in NE. I want to clean them up like new and have them clear coated but don't know who would do something like that. Any suggestions?

I was looking at powder coating my rims and they show a clear powder coat the they put on polished rims to protect the finish

anyone have any ideas how much something like this would cost? It's a great idea, but I'm fearing that It's going to make a severe dent in someone's wallet....

If you do it,get the clear powder coat,because a regular clear coat paint will start to chip and flake. Powder coating is electricly charged to the wheel,as for the regular clear is just sprayed on,and most paints don't like aluminum.

They had the information on there site but I can not find it now
Thanks for the link. I'll give them a call on Monday. About 4 hrs away from me. Wonder how long they would need the wheels for if I could make a couple day trip out of it. Also wonder if the price listed for wheels is per wheel or for all four. I'll post again after I call and talk to someone.

I did a google search on this and some guys page about a motorcycle came up. The wheels looked very nice, and he claimed that all it took to clean was plain water. I really like the sound of that.

Have you thought about Zoop Seal? I will probably try that the next time I polish my wheels.

Never heard of that. What is it - just some kind of polish?

It is not a polish. It is a polished aluminum and stainless sealer. After polishing your wheels you apply it and it is suppossed to protect your wheels from oxidation, which destroys the shine. I think the zoop seal is said to protect for at least 1 year. After I get new tires on my welds I will be applying them.

Looks like it's $60 per wheel and they have a 2 week backup right now. Also, can't drive in on the wheels to be coated as they have no way to remove tires or put them back on the wheel which needs to be baked for several hrs. Cheaper than I thought but don't want to pay for shipping wheels round trip and don't want to make two trips down there to drop off and pick up. Also can't live without my truck for 2 or 3 weeks. Need an extra set of wheels/tires for the interim. Has anyone out there done this and is it worth it?
