    i have been reading a lot about new wheels for my magnetic gray SR5 4wd premium. I was going to get Fuel vector rims and was told by a few folks that matte black rims are not so great because they look washed out very fast. Am told you have to armour all them to keep them nice. I want low maintenance rims that stay looking nice. Is Satin the way to go to keep the wheels with a little shine? Gloss seems to shiny. I am concerned about matte looking terrible after a few months and never had black rims before. Looking at Helo 901s, XD 129 Holeshot, XD 132 RG2, or XD 122 Enduro which are all Satin. I want to stay with 17 inch but appreciate any advice on Matte vs Satin and any thoughts on the wheels mentioned if you think they would look good. Wanting something kind of unique, but the numerous brands and selections are killing me lol. Thanks!

    I’d say satin is the easiest to maintain. Although I went with the Trd Pro matte black wheels and coated then with cquartz and they are easy to maintain now.
