Thanks for the info. I actually remembered that I had a pdf of the first printing of the owners manual. On pg. 329 it says aluminum wheels are coated with clearcoat finish, but I'm not sure if that includes the polished alloy as well.
I'll certainly ask my dealership, but I always like to secure a second, or even third, opinion on "obscure" questions like this.
