Clean and Polish One-Side Painted Alloys



Oh eagle-eyed wheel gods, I offer this - these pictures unto you for your sage and expert advice....


I have an interesting (and probably common to pre-bankruptcy GM Chevrolets) wheel predicament.


As you can see from the photos below, I have alloy wheels. The outside, or curb-facing side, of the wheels are obviously painted and clear coated. But the inside appear to be naked alloy? What does it look like to all of you?

I have a process for the curb-facing side of the wheels (wash, clay, polish, seal) but have not yet figured out a process for the inside/barrel of the wheel as I am not yet sure if it is naked alloy.


So is it naked alloy or clear-coated alloy?

If that is a factory GM wheel, it is more than likely cleared front & back. For the inner barrels I would just clay and then seal with Spray Sealant. That should keep them easy to clean until next time.


As a side note, who balanced that wheel and tire? That amount of weight placed in that fashion is atrocious.
