Rims that don't hold snow.

Does anybody have any suggestions on rims that don't hold snow. The five spoke design on the Compass seems to hold it there forever. With the recent snow two almost 10 inch dumps in a week, the vibrations are getting annoying.

My 18" held a lot of snow too but the 16" Patriot rims that I'm running now seem to be better, but that Is very subjective since we haven't had quite as much snow as a few years ago.

Maybe try generic Steel wheels like the ones you cna buy from Discount Tire. I believe their brand is Unique Wheels or something like that. The only way i see those holding snow is in the back but even then I dont think it'd pack in too much? GL

I'll have to look into the steelies. When I had my Corolla it had then and they never picked up snow. I have thought about cooking spray on the back side of the rim, but i doubt it would help. Might lose the brakes..

WD-40 works well for keeping the snow from sticking. Just don't get it on your tires.

I have plain jane steel wheels for our Patriot's winter tires and they are much harder to remove snow from the inside than the OEM alloy wheels. I use a snow brush and sometimes a tire iron just to clean the inside.
