It's the brake dust that you'll have issues with I think. Not so much that you'll lose the shine.. they will just get dirty with road grime and brake dust.
Also, the wheels get washed when the car gets washed... brakes dont.
I had a set of wheels polished and then clear powder coated. The finish dulled off a little, was sort of like a few weeks after polishing, but it stayed that way all the time.
Because the surface is shiny, the adhesion is pretty low, so they were prone to chipping.
I'd be cleaning them up, like you suggest, then getting them HPC coated. It is immune to the heat. The better you smooth them out, the shinier they will end up.
