You can always powdercoat it another color (i.e., black, titanium gray, etc.)...once you do, I am selling 2 tires for 18" wheels (245/40/18 Toyo Proxes FZ4 w/ 80-90% tread left) for $200. Click on my sig. link to see how I powdercoated my 18x9 COBRA Y2Ks "Biker" black. Cost me $40/wheel. IMO, don't clearcoat because I had it clearcoated awhile back and it cracked on certain end of some spokes. Powdercoat is very strong enough...so clearcoating it is not needed. Good luck.
