TH owners with Black Painted Aluminum Wheels

Good afternoon evening all;

so i wanted to ask if anyone knows the type of finish that comes on these wheels. are they glossy, semi-gloss, matte, flat etc? the reason for the question is that i had planned on waxing my wheels after i just washed them with MEGS ultimate liquid wax but directions say NOT recommended for anything other than glossy finishes. i do not want to change the appearance, so thought i would check here to see if anyone a) is OCD enough to wax their wheels and b) what megs or other brand would be consistent in keeping the appearance and safe for these black painted aluminum clear coated PVD wheels....

thanks everyone!

I'd say that it is semi-gloss but, that is my opinion, anybody else want to chime in on this case.

Yeah I would say semi gloss or satin, but it also has a clear coat over it too. I bought some second hand that had mild scratches from storage and gently polished them out then hit them with a wax finish and no probs at all.

I'll concur with semi or satin. I have put the Turtle Wax Ice on mine and it didn't really change appearance. A tinge of a shine, but you could still tell it was more 'flat' underneath that the body paint.. It did def help keep them easier to clean, so that's an up side. Can't speak to the brand you are considering though...
