The first thing I did when I got these wheels was to wax them before installing them to make for easy cleaning and they do clean easy but... As expensive as these wheels are you would think the finish would last life of wheels, it does not. The center caps are all turning white also. I have 35000 miles on these wheels and while they take PA's horrible roads without losing shape they don't look so spiffy any more. They do reduce weight by 8lbs per wheel, I got a best of 48 mpg on normal every day driving in warm weather, and a worst of 39 mpg in winter driving. On three separate trips going 526 miles from PA to NMB SC averaging 72 mph I have gotten 56 mpg, it is amazing to be able to use 13.8 gallons of fuel to get to Myrtle beach drive almost 150 miles while in MB before having to fill up, partial fill before coming home and I can still do another 150 miles on what is about 2.5 tanks of fuel to cover 1500 miles to, from and at vacation, no gas car can do that... sorry Prius owners.
