My dealer had a true blue with white tunnel spokes on the showroom floor, and I fell in love instantly. I ordered the same combo. I had the white holies on my '03 hardtop, and know how hard white wheels can be to keep clean, but just love how they look. Someone in another post said that the tunnel spokes aren't as bad with the brake dust because there isn't as much area exposed. Not sure how true that is, guess I'll find out in a few weeks when I get my car.

When you get your car, spray the wheels with ArmorAll Wheel Protectant. The brake dust hardly sticks at all. I've only had to clean my silver wheels and re-apply about every 1000 miles when using this product.

You, I went out and bought a can the day after I ordered the car, after reading about it on here.

I get more comments on these wheels than I get on the car itself.

MCJoe: Great combination of colors. Best looking tunnel spokes I think!

Thanks, I absolutely love them. You can see them from across a parking lot.

That's a really old thread you posted to LOL. That said, I agree. Those are sweet rims!

my 3 year old told me this morning that he likes my wheels and would like me to install the same kind on our prius.



it would definitely be an improvement on the cheesy base model hubcaps that have seen far too many curbs.
