Question -- can anyone advise as to how well the 2013 SHO painted rims hold up vs. the winter grime, sand & salt?

I just tried out the Conti Extreme Contact DWS tires in the snow. They performed very well. So I'd recommend them to anyone with the performance package that wants all season tires.

I have a 2013 Sho with the painted rims that I purchased in June of '12 so it's been thru a mild eastern PA winter. I didn't have any issues. Remember, the painted rims also have a clear coat...like the body paint.

The rims most likely take less of a hit from 'winter grime, sand, and salt' than some parts of the body since it's the tires that throw most of that stuff from the road toward the car (thus...away from the rims).

A bigger concern is the brake dust that settles on parts of the painted rims that are VERY HARD to clean. IMO, a complete deep detailed cleaning of the ENTIRE rim should be done twice a year. It's also been suggested to me that I should consider waxing the rims too....which I may start including in my twice a year cleaning.
