    To be fair, you will have to clean any colour as often as you would white. Just an option..... You would notice it as much if not more and it would be different. If done right it would be no more difficult to clean as your alloy wheels.

    if you get red ones or blue ones or gold ones dirty, they still look like the colour they're supposed to be. But when white ones get dirty they'll look like crap. IMO of course
