Thanks for the advice man. I actually am never going full polished again. I had my SP500's fully redone because I got sick of the maintenance the polished wheels required. They literally would need a full repolishing after every wash because the raw aluminum oxidized, turned dull, and water spotted. Looked "ok" from ten feet away, but up close, they looked like doodoo. I honestly do not know how some guys do it. When I got those wheels they were horrendous because the previous wonder obviously knew little about upkeep and probably just used standard wheel cleaners on them which made them look extremely dull. Required hours of polishing work, which made them look brand new, but it doesn't last long at all. Trying to stay away from chroming not only because of the cost involved but also with my brake setup, they won't look clean for more than three hours of driving because of the dust I get.

I figured something between a silver and very dark grey powdercoat would be the most forgiving color to hide brake dust and ease of clean up.

My SP500's would solve all your problems and mine.

Ya now that you say that, my polished TT wheels are a PITA! But they look amazing clean and polished. Maybe go with a bright silver cleared? or something gloss painted that is easy to clean off.

SW actually had three cars. Two black ones and my white one. One of the black cars had a full supra swap and was a 9 second car. The other black NA/T had 6,500 miles when it was sold to a member here on the board. My car went through two people before I got it. It's got 75K miles on it now. SW went by streetking on this board so you can find all three cars. I don't want to hi jack thread so here is link to mine if you have questions.
