how long do they last until they start to rust. I cant decide between american racing polished baja, or a chrome set
I had my rims for 4 weeks maybe. Then I found rust starting. Luckly, I was able to wipe it off. It all depends on how you take care of them. I live in Upstate NY. These rims will never see winter. I've got a spare set. I also try to clean them once a week and I might try a polishing protectant.

There is a misconception about chrome wheels. While they require more attention to keep them up, they will last a long time. I have a set of the regular chrome nugget wheels on my truck... had them for about 5 years now and they still look great. Every once in a while, if I haven't cleaned it in a while, I'll see some surface rust starting. A brillow pad is all it takes to get that off. The aluminum wheels I got with my Jeep are pitted really bad because the guy that owned it before me didn't take care of them. I guess the moral of the story is that if you take care of your wheels, whatever you buy, they'll last a long time.
