Just wondering if anyone has ever taken the paint off stock wheels and if there's a polishable surface underneath? I think it would be pretty cool to have a brushed aluminum or polished look on some stock wheels but I'm not sure if it would work. Thanks

Its all according to how much your willing to pay...

Any metal surface can be polished or chromed in some fashion. The brushed aluminum look is easy to get, basically just strip and sand the OEM coating off and get it down to the bare metal. Then you just need to use super fine sand paper to get the look even. THen you need to clear coat it in some fachion to keep it that way and keep the aluminum from oxiding over time.

Or you could take the wheels off, break them down, sandblast or media blast them clean and have them nickle or chrome plated.

Ok thanks for the ideas. Not really into the chromed look but that satin polish or brushed finish might look cool. Just a matter of actually doing it.
