Bought new wheels and the ones I wanted only came in Matt Black, wanted gloss, is there anything to put on them that would give some shine without going the gloss clearcoat route.

really depends on what the finish actually is. if its a matte powder coat then there isnt much you can do without adding a clear coat. If its a painted rim with a matte finish clear coat you could wet sand the matte clear coat with 2000 grit and follow it up with a polishing compound to get a nice shine on the rims.

you do risk sanding thru the paint but with 2000 grit its pretty hard to do unless the paint is paper thin. you could also look into professional recoating if you want a perfect result. lots of shops that will sandblast the coating off and powder coat your rims in whatever color you want with a gloss finish
