    Yes, the wheels looked like ass before. All sorts or curb rash, etc.. Nothing major but enough to look pretty bad. I actually tried to polish one of the wheels beofre I took them in. I messed up the wheel pretty bad with 80 grit sand paper trying to remove the original finish. They were able to remove all the scratches.

    My car has 10 hole wheels and I have another set of 10 holes with snow tires.

    I hardly ever have to add air to them compared to other aluminum wheels.They seem to hold air almost forever.

    I hear of others ****ing about having to add air all the time with their aluminum wheels.

    (Example,my mother has a 97 Honda Accord with aluminum wheels that leaked air so bad around the rim that the tires had to be dismounted and sealed around the rim with silicone to stop the leaks).

    I wish my 10 holes looked that good though.
