Default Do Stock Wheels Have Clear Coat?

I am wondering if the stock 18's for a 2004 have clear coating on them. I bought a mothers mag and aluminum polish, however I've read not to use it on anything with a clear coat finish. Is it safe to use on our wheels??

or polished chrome? They are aluminum, didn't realize there was a difference between aluminum and polished aluminum if that's where you were going.

You got a pic of the rims your talking about. polished is more of a chrome shiny look. Does yours have 5 or 6 stars

They are the ones in my signature minus the plasti dip. They don't look chrome by any means though.

Most OEM wheels are painted and clear coated. Some are powder coated, and even then a lot have clear coat. Many wheels with machined lips or accents also have clear coats on top.

There are some aftermarket companies that make bare polished aluminum wheels, targeting muscle cars. That may be what the Mother's polish is intended for.

Just use mild soap to clean your wheels, and wax to protect them.
