The wheels are almost impossible to keep polished & looking good.
A friend of mine waited until he needed tires, and had his Powder Coated Silver.

i had mine powder coated black two years ago and they look great and are holding up exultant . It cost me $70.00 for the two and i thought that was a bargain.
