I know chrome has more of a shine to it, but other than that, what how do the two compare in maintenance? What would I do to keep the polished rims up as opposed to the chrome? Thanks in advance-

Chrome requires less maintenance. Just wipe them off. Polished wheels require much more effort to polish and require polishing much more often unless you do something like zoop seal them but that is pretty costly. If the polished wheel is clear coated, there is really nothing to do but wipe the brake dust off. If it is polished and unclearcoated, you have to go through what was mentioned above. My Bullitt replicas I have on the car now are polished and in my opinion Dante Designs does a poor job of polishing them from the factory, they really need hit with some sand paper and then the range of polishes. Not horrible looking I guess, I am just a perfectionist. My polished wheels have never got to the point where they looked bad, but everytime you polish them you noice they look better, I've never let them go more than a month during the driving season without polishing but don't really know how long you could let them go before the got bad.

Hey chuacw,

What size are those rims and is your car lowered? I've been thinking about getting the same rims for my SC, but wasn't sure how they would look with the stock suspension.
