Yes, if you have a good scrape on your wheel it's through the clear coat anyway. You will remove even more clear coat fixing the damage but it will look tons better than a gouged up wheel. You really can't even tell the clear coat isn't there unless you look really close.

That's also why I just took a small brush and went over the spots I fixed with a little clear coat. It's not prefect by all means but 99% of people would never see anything but a great looking wheel. You would have to get up close and personal to really see anything that was fixed.
