I think your best bet is to find an auto painting shop or someone that does powder coating.

I have the factory 19" and 20" Gloss Black rims on my Evora S and they are a pain to keep clean. I am trying to find a coating/wax that will keep them clean longer. I have to clean them after every drive, even short drives.

Use armor all wheel protectant. Works great! Spray on, let it dry and nothing sticks to it. Lasts a few weeks or until you wash your wheels.

Haven't damaged a wheel in 25years. But nicked a curb the other day on an incredibly stupid designed entrance to a CVS. Seems like the clear coat is SEVERAL layers thick. Is that a "opaque powder coat??. I plan on applying clearcoat till its built back up unless someone has a better idea.

Any paint shop can clear them in gloss.

Or powder coat them.
