You really do not want a coated wheel, they only last a few years. A good thing about a mirror finished wheel is that you can always polish it back to its original state. The Alcoa Dura-Bright system is not a coat like Tom said, it is an oxidation process. Originally designed for the bus market, this process has found many purposes. It now has the same polish level 10 as its mirror finished counterparts, basically you can see your reflection. They are both good systems.

Well the boys at the dealer told me they were, and I have papers congratulating me on the purchase of the wheel. I guess I don't care, but might have been led astray. I'll check my wheel in the morning but suspect it's not from the way it's acting.

UPDATE: They aren't..
