Natural or Lacquered? Keep in mind that if you choose "lacquered" for your wheel and then choose an "add-on" accessory, this "add on" may only be available with a "natural" (unlacquered) finish.
Finishing Your Wheel: If you choose the "natural" option, the wheel and accessories are easy to finish yourself with wax polish, wood oil or get creative with some paint!
