Looks nice. I'd forgo polishing the inner barrels though.

Such a beautiful wheel, but I am such a clean freak, I would have to spend like an hour per wheel to keep those things as clean as I would like. Also, what is the point of those polished barrels, when it is so difficult to get in between the tight spokes to clean them. LM-R's would certainly be easier.

I agree. Unless the rims are used only during shows, it's not worth the extra money. Too hard to keep clean for a daily driver.
