    What do you mean? It looks powder coated with a machined edge.

    Actually it looks 'to me' that the light is what is making it look machined. I think the entire wheel is powercoated. I 'think" they are calling this Knight Chrome because they lightly coated a chrome wheel so that some of the chrome look remains. Just my observation!

    You cannot do a light powder coat and get the chrome to show through. But you could do a sort of "candy" translusent powdercoat, that would work. I heard you can now powdercoat metal flake too.

    Definatelly a different colour than the lug nuts though and I suppose they are chrome.
