Personally, I think this is the best looking aftermarket wheel for the Magnum and it was so close to being perfect. I only have two complaints, but to me they were pretty serious. After having the wheels on my Magnum for one winter, the SM logo and center caps were already "failing". In Oklahoma we don't have super serious winters, but there are several times where they have to get the salt trucks out; I try to drive as little as possible during these time and always try and get the "crud" off of my car ASAP. After one winter, the clear coat on the center caps had been completely eaten away. The rest of the wheel seemed to hold up pretty well though. Also, the SM logo that is bolted on near the lip of the wheel.... the two bolts holding the logo on started to rust in less then a year and began to look really cheap. I do have to give Tire Rack some serious credit though. I emailed them my concern with the center caps and asked how I could go about getting some new ones. Within 3 days, I had received and apology and a new set of center caps free of charge; excellent customer service. As much as I like the looks of the wheels, I'm afraid I'll be staying away from Sport Muscle wheels in the future…. And that's too bad, because I think these wheels would look awesome on my wife's Element.
