Are these wheels painted or anodized/ something else?

The Factory Bullits?

I think they're painted. 99% sure, actually. Managed to ding mine down in the slot for the lug nut whilst using an impact wrench. Always tape wrap those sockets!!

Painted, Just recieved takeoffs fro ebay to use for the winter, and waxed em up.

You guys that dinged em, was it on the last lug nut, right when the wheel comes loose?

Been a while, but I think it was. I saw a nifty plastic-coated deep well impact socket set, just for expensive rims, and it gave me an idea - all my sockets that might get used on the wheels are now wrapped with one layer of duct tape. Presto, no scratchee!!

Use a thin wall socket and a breaker bar to remove and torque wrench to install, alot of impact socket are too thick and will ding the wheels.
