Glosscoat on matt wheels?


Recommended Posts

I'm about to coat my new car with Glosscoat and obviously, but they have a slightly matt and 'rough' textured finish. They feel almost like a fine  wet and dry sandpaper finish rather than the usual smooth glossy lacquered finish on 99% of wheels, as you'll hopefully see from the picture. So, firstly, would Glosscoat work on them, and secondly, will it change the look and add gloss? I want to retain the original matt look. I could probably try a very small test patch on the barrel somewhere but am hoping somebody has encountered this before?

Thanks for your help.
