Machined, or machine polished, wheels are etched with a state-of-the-art, computerized lathe and then clearcoated for protection. This process etches tiny lines (like the grooves on a CD) into the surface of the metal and gives the wheels a very shiny appearance. Wheels may be machined on the full face of the wheel, or painted and machined only on certain areas like the lip and spokes for a bold, two-tone look.
Painted black wheels are spray-painted with automotive-style paint and are available in several finishes, including satin black, semi-gloss black, carbon black, stealth black, matte black, and flat black.
Painted silver wheels are spray-painted with automotive-style paint and are available in several finishes, including hyper silver, super silver, dark silver, titanium silver, tungsten silver, satin silver, and matte silver.
Painted wheels are spray-painted with automotive-style paint in dozens of colors, from solid to metallic -- red, blue, grey, gold, and more -- with glossy, satin, or matte finishes. The color is sealed with a clearcoat to protect the finish against corrosion.
