I have a factory set of limited wheels which got scratched not gouged was wondering if anyone has had their wheels sand blasted what they look like?
I was thinking of blasting and putting a clear finish on them.

I would not sandblast Aluminum wheels as you have a very high likely hood of damaging them. What they do at a refinishing shop here in my city is, they use a spray on paint remover. Let it sit and it will bubble the clear coat off of them. Clean it off, buff and then repaint anything which need to be done and apply a new coat of clear

There is blasting media other than sand that can be used on aluminum, but any blasting media leaves a rough surface -- great for painting, not polishing.

Ever thought of plasti-dip spray? You can find loads of examples on Youtube.
