So my question to you all is whether or not you know of any problems with either the Rockstars Black (which I believe are matte) or the Moto Metals. Ever heard of either one having problems with the typical wheel cleaners you would buy over the counter, or the cleaners used in your standard car wash, such as AutoBell? Or any other reason you would recommend one or the other, besides looks (I think I'd be pretty happy with the looks of either)?
I had the black Moto Metal 951 on my 06 and never had a issue. I usually just wash them with soap, water, brush and rag. The thing to watch for is the center caps at your lack shop. I had a few careless techs balancing my wheels who broke a couple of them when removing my wheels. I just removed them before taking the truck to the shop to avoid the problem.
