your basically asking how to keep cheap plating looking it's best. The best way it to keep them as clean as possible with minimum exposure to the elements.

I had some triple gold chinas on my ride for 8 years...still have them, not a speck of rust on them. I don't drive in the rain save for a few times some sprinkles started up at a show or two. The only time they got wet is when I would wash them, and I would dry them immediately. I would also throw a coat of wax on them from time to time. Kind of hard to tell the condition of them from this pic but they are still in real good condition. Got some all chrome real daytons for it now. :thumbsup:

don't be a lazy fucker :dunno: get out and wash thm once a week. drythem after you wash them with a compressor or go on a few mile drive to dry them :uh: I'll save you the whole you get what you pay for line and tell you you get out of something what you put into it. don't roast the tires... loose spokes, don't be lazy..... rust. If it snow's where your at take them off in the winter. Clean them with a quality wire wheel cleaner...... black spokes. Use anti sieze and not vasoline, or any other ghetto shit you can think of to put the ko's on. Wax em, it helps. and for sure go to a place that has mounted tires on a set of wire wheels before. For god sakes don't let them add weights to the front of the wheels. also black walls on ANY wire wheel will make them rust :cheesy: .... or atleast look like shit. My chinas look like the day I bought them by following these easy steps ;)
