    How can I winter proof wheels? I went through another winter and the Hankook RH06 handle great in snow so decided not to get a spare set with winter tires.

    Chrome - can you powder coat clear over this?

    High Polish - can you powder coat clear over this too?

    My Titans have a gloss black spokes that seem fine that will hold up to salt. The lip will for sure not (high polish).

    Any thoughts? A clear coat paint probably wouldn't last long.

    some good wheel wax and a sealant should hold up fine. you should just clean them often to make sure they dont tarnish due to the grime and salt from the roads.

    +1, nothing you can but clean and polish them often. Chrome would last longer then high polish.
     
  4. I don't think you should push your wheels through the Chicago salt. My stock chrome has taken a beating the past two years, even with cleaning and polishing religiously the salt some how eats throughhttps://www.infinitiscene.com/search/1/?q=images/smilies/mad.gif
