    They look good, but once the clear starts to go, they are a pain in the ass to keep looking nice.
    My experience was with some Work wheels on one of my old show cars.

    Impulse thank you for your feed back, i guess i should have mention that all custom brush finishes will have 2 year finish, clear coat warranty and full life time structure warranty. great catch on that one !!

    I would love to see one of these brushed finishes in person. They look fantastic under careful lighting, but I've seen some other photos where they look like they were just whaled on by a baboon with a green scotch-brite pad.

    Then there's the tenuous adhesion that clears seem to have when applied to bare metal. I would assume the brushing would improve adhesion over a full polish, but there's still no base coat.
    Who's warranty is that? Dealer's or MRRs?

    That's a pretty good finish warranty.

    RubyRed one of the main reasons we are able to provide you a better finish warranty is because all of our custom finishes are not sublet out they are done in house at our MRR Location. some other brands take short cuts, they simply do the face and inner barrels ( basically only what you get to see) leaving the rest of the wheel with the factory finish at the bottom. we completely strip the wheels and do complete finish inner barrels, outer barrels and face. if you see the picture carefully the wheel is completely brushes so its fully clear coated as one single uniform finish.

    Just a few RAW cell phone pics, i was bored so might as well put them up.
    no filters, no special lighting just natural sun light and a cell phone its a HTC M8 so bare with me lol.

    but over all i mainly wanted to show how our department finishes their wheels, is all around face, barrels including outer.
