Alright, I'm gettin new wheels soon, and I've been looking around. I think I might wanna get some white wheels, but I'm not set on anything yet. I think I have some white Cobra Rs 17x8 and 17x10.5 (im talkin about tires in another thread... :lol: ) for pretty cheap.

I was just wondering what kind of problems would I have with keeping them clean and whatnot, vs other types of wheels. I appreciate the input. I'm expecting Krazy to come in here with some help. ;)

ive heard they are a pain to keep clean but when they are clean look fantastic, you ever think of getting black wheels like bullits or fr500's those look good on white cars too

Yes they are great when clean and when dirty ...well you know its like a white canvas, and ya throw some paint on there and ya got a splatter painting.

They repel dirt pretty good being powder coated, dont get painted ones.

alright, here's a 15 min photochop. I couldn't get the back wheels so easy, so I just cropped it.

Some more questions I have.

How often do you have to clean them?

Are nicks in the wheels and curb rash and the like much more obvious than they would be with regular wheels?

clean then at least 1ce a week, and curb rash and stuff is less noticable...

go find a white wall and stair at and see if you can see the cracks in the wall as easy as you could sumthing else, its takes longer!






he's doing this right now everyone... :)

haha, i would go do that, but my office is some off white brownish color... lol.

so if you had white wheels to do over again, would you get them? or just go ahead and get those chromes that you have now?

it just rains a lot here, and I'm moving to Birmingham in a few months, where I won't have my nice driveway and garage.

I'm not decided yet. Thanks for your help.
