White jeeps with polished wheels

I've got a white XJ with black steelies and I'm thinking about switching to some polished aluminum wheels. Anyone have pics of this combo? Any white Jeep will do as long as the wheels are shiny.

I love the look of polished aluminum wheels, but please keep in mind the maintenance nightmare that they are.....

I wash them just like any other wheel and every few months take some Mother's Mag and Aluminum Polish with my powerball. What maintenance??

No, they are Pacers. MT look alikes 15x10 w/33x12.5's mounted

They stick out a bit but in FL you are allowed 5.5 inches of uncovered tread.

I have american racing venturas and they are high maintenance. We have hard water here so you can't let a drop of water dry on the wheel or it will leave spots. It definitely gets annoying after a while.

I don't consider water spots a problem. My heep isn't going to any car shows. But as far as cleaning them and keeping them looking good I don't do anything different than I did with stock wheels.

How long have you had them? Please keep a good coat of wax on them. I had two sets of Centerline wheels that were beautiful, but after 7 or so years of salt, sand and weather, they became pitted. They were polished during decent weather, but winters really took their toll. I'm glad you love yours, they look great. I just don't know that I want to spend that much time keeping them looking good... Like I said, I LOVE the look of polished aluminum, I don't thing there is a prettier wheel made. But I hate seeing them in need of work. JMO. I mean no harm.
