Sweet rims man, sure beats the common stock ones on mine :P. I'm hoping to get those changed soon.

Ha, the reality is that although rims look nice, they are a pain in the rear to clean and care for. I have 19's and the ride is stiff, always worried about banging into something. I have the stock rims, and if I could find a great wide set of carrera S rims I may go back. I like the wide stance but the upkeep and all, is not so fun. The grass is always greener right?

Hi and welcome. Yes, those rims look like a B to clean. I have 5 spoke carrera lights and I think they are a B to clean. I asked someone with more intense wheels what his trick was to keep his wheels so nice looking and he said he takes them off every week and soaks them, etc. Yuk! Sounds like punishment to me. But, they do have a look!

Soak them? I am a clean freak but I could not do that. They are horrible to clean and keep clean, but they look hot, backs are 19 x 10 and from the rear end they are like steam rollers.
