Clear coated aluminum. If you remove the clear coat you will have a hell of a time keeping them looking good after that. A lot of VTX owners found this out the hard way when they went to polish them. Be careful of what cleaners you use so you don't remove the clear coat.FM109 said:I have trying to think of what to do with the wheels. I think they are powder coated? or are they alum with a clear coat. Any Ideas?
