    Basically just got myself some poorboys wheel sealant and about to apply it on. The wheels in question are just powder coated and not even fitted to a car yet, so should I polish them up with some SRP first before the wheel sealant, or just go straight with wheel sealant stuff?

    Cheers.

    If there are fine swirl marks then you could fill them up with some SRP, then a few coats with the sealant. dosn't really matter either way. The poorbys will provide good protection with or without the SRP.

    I'll go with the wheel sealant straight off then, no swirl marks, the wheels just came back from the powder coaters!

    Cheers.

    Dude, you wont need the SRP on them, if they are fresh out and anything like mine, the poorboys will do the trick straight off.
