    Glad you got it resolved. So after all of this, what are you going to do moving forward. From the response, I can't tell if coating a polished wheel is a good thing or not.

    I'm going to hit them with carpro intensive water spot remover then lightly with a metal polish every month then ceramic boost and strip the coating at the end of the year. I'm unsure if I'm going to recoat. If I do I'll have to do a lot more brand research

    A little update as I continue my experimentation. Today I hit the wheels with metal polish #2 then followed up with ceramic boost and I feel that's the ticket. There was minimal black residue and it got just about all the markings off the wheels. Following with the boost made a retarted bright shine that the pictures can't do justice. We'll see how the coating holds up now. Hopefully using the less abrasive #2 and followed be the boost will help preserve the coating somewhat. On to the pics:

    Awesome man! Thank you for doing all of the different experimenting here. Unfortunately I don't have any vehicles with polished wheels (I want some polished CCW SP550's for my GTO but my bank account says NO!), so I really only get to test different techniques on customer cars...and I don't really like doing that.
