Would to know wheel finish everyone likes best and why.

I really like the look of chrome but sure that it is the easyest to care for.

Opps, this is going the wrong way. What I meant to ask was what factory finish, ie chrome,painted power-coat etc.

Me 3...chrome all around. Rickard...it's just a matter of taste, go for the look you like. As far as keepng them clean..as soon as you replace the stock disk brake pads that the cruiser comes with, it's as easy as a quick wipe to keep em clean and shiny!

I love chrome, but also love silver, and got the painted alloys - they match the body perfectly. Be advised that there's "chrome-clad" out there from Chrysler - actually plastic bonded to the wheel....
I had the painted alloys on my '02 as well, and had absolutely no problems.[:I]

I prefer the look of Chrome. I've had the silver alloy rims that are much lighter wheels but are dam hard to keep clean. Chrome wheels weigh alot more, but sure do look better. I even had a pair of billet aluminum rims on my pt made by Boyd Coddington. Billet is aluminum is close to chrome, but doesn't shine as easy. In fact, they are harder to keep clean and shine more than plain silver alloys. My clear coat came off the Boyds. Now they don't shine at all. Bigest waste of money I ever spent on a set of rims. Chrome is the way to go!
