Does anyone have any pictures of helo maxx 16" rims, chrome or polished aluminum. Also how well do these rims hold up? I live in a super cold salty city during winter, but if i ran them just in the summer will the finish last on them?

pics on a NBS would be best

My buddy has them on his 97 and they are holding up. If i was you and lived in them conditions, I'd go black and keep the headaches away. JMO.

I have the black ones, and the black is holding up very nicely. BUT, the polished lip parts on all 4 are peeling and pitting after just one winter...

I dont really like the black on black rim look in those wheels, i like the chrome but from experience the rim beads peal fast and i dont want to get them re finished all the time. I just need something to look good during the summer, my truck is always clean and never see's mud so wouldnt that make a diff?
