Aftermarket wheels

I was wondering if any of you had any luck with aftermarket wheels that will hold up to the winters in the northeast with salt on the roads , I'm looking at wheels but I don't want to buy something and have the finish clacking or pealing in a year . Also I'm looking at black wheels no chrome

I've used aluminum wheels painted black such as the MB 72. I've used steel wheels painted black such as the Black Rock Soft 8. And for the past two years I've used aluminum wheels with a polished AND clearcoated finish such as the MB Chaos. I have zero trouble with road salt.

There are two things you want: A) clearcoat finish on a aluminum wheel OR black paint coating and B) frequent washing. I always wash my wheels at least once per month if not twice per month by hand with a bucket of soap and water (no chemicals).

What you do NOT want is a polished wheel that doesn't have a clearcoat finish. Those are a nightmare. But, you said you're going with a black wheel anyhow so you'll be fine.

I run the American Racing Mojave Teflon coated here in CO with no problems.
