    Considering the mileage I do, and the track usage, I'm pretty impressed with them to be honest. Running Falken 452s on the rear, and those are not bad too. Can't comment on potholes, never been over one with these rims on, but I think if you hit a pothole hard, no tyre is going to save your rim!

    All I did was clean it, dry it, then coat of Meguiars Gold for quickness, couldn't find my Swissvax Best of Show, someones borrowed it and not returned it! :mad:

    I had rims refurbed last year, and put a couple coats of poorboys Rim Wax prior to fitting, still cleans verywell, unfortunately, the pictured rim seems to have some sort of corrosion coming through on the edge.

    Got any pics of it after the wash JoJo?

    Shame I won't be at ADI 2012 now, but will be doing the Badger5 dyno day instead. If it's dry on Sat I shall give the car a wax in honour of all you lot down at Castle Coombe.
