Just wondering, what you guys think…Is it better to have your rim painted or polished…?

Painted is better. Polishing and repolishing is a bitch. They are lighter though...

Paint. You'd have to clean your polished wheels after each ride. Paint looks better anyway.

If you're taking them off and having them done anyway, spend the extra and have them powdercoated. The coating will be more durable.

i actually rust mine becuase then they can't get any worse so i don't have to worry about them...until they fall apart, hopefully not while riding

So far it seems most people like to have their rim's painted...some waxed, and very few polished...hmmm, interesting. I dunno, I gotta decide soon on what I'm gonna do. My wife said she'd help me polish and/or wax mine, but didn't know about the painting thing...

I'm surprised Jayson (Lowlife) hasn't posted on this one. He hand polished his rims for ....get this.... 80 hours! They look like mirrors. Would he do it again? Maybe with a gun to his head.

Was he polishing while his cousin did the sweet custom paint job? that looked like an 80 hr job.
