They do get dust on them but not too much at all really.. I can go out and rub my hand allover it and barely get any black powder on my hand.. But there it some.. I plan on getting 22" rockstars within the month tho.. And will be getting caliper covers which other then look good also help stop the brake dust

awesome! inform me when you get the rockstars. i want them aswell but to many people have them and i like the monsters but both are $$$$! down side about the rockstars is that they dont show any caliper which would kill the point of my red ones lol.

I hear the same thing that everyone had them.. But I really don't see that many even here on the forumz but anyways I agree with the same about the calipers but 22" there is some space to see it.. 20 or lower there is barely any space.. So it depends on what size you get

I've been looking around more then ever for the past like 3 months about rim size and tires and everything for this to happen and I've decided to get 22"x9.5 because most people who have bought 22s say there is no ride difference the thing they say is they should have purchased 24" because the 22s look just like the stock 20s.. That's the only bad thing I've heard.. Then I looked into 24s and the way the rockstars are made they would be sticking out 4 or 5 inches with 24s so not a chance for that for me.. and the tire size I will be getting is 305/45/22 and the brand are Nittos.. I will be getting them from this place called "zekes custom wheels" sort of around my area..

Oh I see. Yea they all say 24's...I'm afraid that tire size will kill my 12.6 mpg as it is, so I'm debating on tire size. How much are they at that place

24s will deff kill your 12.6 lol not sure about the 22s though probably shouldn't be that much of a difference.. Least I hope !.. came to like 2300 after everything I believe which is cheaper then many places around that I have called.. Mrwheeldeal was a little cheaper but that's sketchy to me lol

Brand new they are about 300-400.. But since they are used AND powder coated you could probably stay right around that price and if you sell them with your tires well id say you could easy get a little more for them even

Exactly.. I would keep them as well.. Esp since they have been powder coated !.. Worst case could always use them as winters if you get other rims and like the other set better.. (What I will do when I get my rockstars)
