    rims and tire help

    I have a couple of questions for yall
    Does anyone know if these rims are any good I have never heard of them before?
    http://www.wheelsforless.com/SearchR...ywords=675C-79

    Also whats better polished aluminum or chrome plated?

    I have been looking at rims for a couple months now and I am tryin to decide between the ones up top, BC smoothie 2s (which are very pricey in my book), Foose legends, and tt 2s or ms. The main reason i like them ridler rims cuz they resemble the smoothie 2s and they cost half the price...
    Im wanting 17s with at least 9" all the way around. Any tire suggestions would be helpful also.
    Any info will be greatly appreciated!!!

    the wheels you have linked have the look of that of an older muscle car. chrome is going to be easier to maintain IMO. torq thrusts and the smoothies are both nice choices but they are certainly not rare. really depends on what you are going for.

    With chrome how long can i expect them to last until they start peeling. The torque thrust are so common that im kind of wanting something more rare like the foose legends or the ridlers.

    is the car a DD and the only think that will really make chrome peel quickly is salt.

    well any amount of salt will tear chrome wheels up. polished aluminum has to be scrubbed about once a month especially if the car is a DD. chrome is much easier to clean regularly.

    I like both of them equally. im just looking for the best thing for my dd car. From what ive been told is that when clean polished looks just as good or better than chrome, but when they are dirty they look real dull unlike chrome were if they get a little dirty they still shine through for the most part Right or Wrong?tell me this how long does it take to polish them things each time if i had a drill and powerball
