    Black rim flaking

    I have noticed some pictures of black rims that look like the black finish is flaking off or peeling. What is the best black rims and which ones should I avoid.

    Probably due to people not taking care of them. Any wheels will start to flake/peel of you don't clean them regularly and polish them, brake dust is a killer on wheels.

    WOW, what a difference, they look great.
    OBTW, i hope you didnt think I was ragging on you. I just wanted to be sure if I finally do change to black rims, I was going to get good ones. I had never thought of maintenance before I saw yours.

    Thanks,
