I bought a used set of OEM rims to mount snow tire on for the winter months. They have a few minor spots of curb rash. I took some fine wet sandpaper to test one spot. The rash came right out and now the repair spot is a bit dull, and a shade darker than the rest of the rim, which is very "shiny".

Does anyone know if the rims are just highly "polished"? OR Are the rims painted and clear coated?

Attached is a stock picture of the rims I'm working with....
