    If you still have the standard ones and the tyres in the shed "say". Then Yes it might be a good idea.

    ive been putting the auto glym HD wax on them


    it does a fantastic job , i have spent silly money on both cars wheels so its right to wax them up and clean at least once a week and wax every month

    I'm looking for a set of winter wheels, I'd change em, but not due to the dirt.

    It's the ice and sliding into kerbs that worries me. Jeff, doesn't that worry you at all?
