Spray paint mine after I sand them down then prime them and after a couple of trail riding, they were scratch so unless you powder coat them, they will scratch up over time.

i sanded my wheels down, primed them with self etching, and put two coats of hammered on. rode for two days on trails and ended up with a chip the size of a pea. solution: get the can out and touch up. done. polished wheels might need a little more prep work to get the paint to stick better.

adding your location to your profile may save you some grief from any grammar police... depending on what that location is, of course.

5W0P3: where were you riding to scuff the paint off that badly?

Could have sworn that he's from Canada but never said where from?
