Hey Guys, just a quick question about black rims w/ polished lips. Are the lips in fact polised or is it a chrome like powder coating? Would there be a difference if it was polished or chrome/silver powder coated? Sorry for such a dumb question, just need to get my facts straight :D

I believe it can be either Polished or painted for that mirror finish, painting would be cheaper, but perhaps its less durable? My rims are getting polished as we speak...

Yep, it can be either or... but rims that are advertised as "polished lip" are not painted afaik.
