This is a great wheel for the price. I was looking for something to run my summer/AutoX tires on, but didn't want a heavy beast - these are lighter than my factory OEM's, but they aren't superlight. I didn't know Sparco made wheels, and I was a bit hesitant, but I was glad I took the leap. The flat black paint is very good and coverage is smooth, however it does scratch easily, so take your time when mounting/unmounting on the vehicle and you shouldn't have issues. I bought these mounted and balanced with Kumho Ecsta XS.
As for cleaning, you will need something to cut the brake dust/greasy residue from the road, the flat paint seems to want to hold on to it...however they are easy to clean and get into the corners. I usually remove them so I can wash the inside of the wheel too.
