I had white s spokes on my last mini and they got so many surface scratches very quickly.
I didnt kerb them at all, but after a year of having them on the car they were ready for scrapping or refurbing.
Never again.
Got silver s spokes on my current mini and they much easier to keep looking bright and shiny looking.

Had white S Spokes on my last MINI - looked really good when clean but get dirty very quickly

If they have been kept clean for for the life of them they seem to stay white and dont start to go a yellow colour

Look great, easy to clean, look great.....



Weigh and tonne and do nothing for handling.

Did I mention they look great?





^^ They're more than five years old in the above photo.

I had the 15" rockets in white on my last coop...loved them, but required cleaning every weekend....but hey they looked great when clean!


Not sure I would have white wheels again tho.....will stick to mat black for the foreseeable future!
