what are the easiest wheels...

...that you've ever had to clean? and what were the hardest?

Scott and i have always thought the Firehawk's wheels were the easiest to clean. they are by far the easiest wheels i've ever had to detail. all rounded edges and no tight corners to collect brake dust. it's also easy to reach past the spokes and clean the inner part of the rim.



the hardest wheels to clean were those darn 17" GTO wheels. they had the worst brake dust collecting crease on either side of each spoke. it made me wish i had opted for the 18" wheels so bad.



and i can't even imagine cleaning a multi-spoke wheel like those low-riders have. i hope the 5th gen's wheels are somewhat easy to clean. they look like they should be.

so what are your votes for easiest/hardest wheels to clean?

Most anything Centerline sucks cleaning....They have lots of nooks and crannys. My TRuck has centerline sunrays and my Parents 57 has pro convo's ( Most pain in the ass wheel ever )
Easiest wheel ever ? either a Cragar/Torque thrust or a Smoothie !

5 spokes are the easiest, mesh are the hardest imo.
