Powder coated alloys

I’m just on with getting a set of alloys powder coated & I get them back on Friday,,they are going to be gloss black,,what’s the best way to get a shine on them before I coat them with C5 to keep them looking shiny.?
I’ve got these for polishing between the spokes

Would have thought they’d have come back shiny from being powder coated, you could just use a polish on them to buff them up more if required / wanted.

What colour car you putting them back on ?

Hi used ultimate compound and menzerna on newly powder coated gloss black wheels, coating does come off as not a normal painting process, becareful as it isn't the same sort of gloss as paint but you won't see it, some say you can't polish it, you can! Gloss black is ocd nightmare though lol

So would I be better off just using a pw then apply C5.?

Hi don't be scared to polish them but you will see paint on your cloth. If never put sealant on my wheels but I don't do many miles.

As Andy said above, if they have been powder coated gloss black they should be very shiny to begin with I’d just apply the C5 straight on. Had my AMG wheels done in gloss black today too going to C5 tomorrow. Nice looking RRS black on black is definitely the best IMO.
