19" Wheel Concerns

Do the 19" wheels have a clear coat on them? I'm wondering because i see small scratches on the aluminum when in the light. Not sure if i did that while cleaning or if that is the style of the metal alloy. I was told that these wheels don't scratch, so don't worry when cleaning them unlike the paint.

Hmm I'm not sure if they have the clear coat on them but I wash the wheels about twice a week with a sponge and I usually make sure I rinse out most of the debris before i wash it but mine haven't been scratching at all

I do not have these wheels, but I have heard on this forum that the 19" alloys come from the factory like that. It is probably a result of the polished finish on the rim.
