I don't see why everyone complains about cleaning them. Its so easy....hose, wheel cleaner, and brush. That simple. Easier than picking leaves out of the windshield base. The only reason i got ceramics was so the wheels would stay clean between washings.

This is why I like my simple looking torque stars. Less brush time.

Seems like if you keep them reasonably clean it'* not a problem. Would only be tough if you haven't cleaned them in a long time. However we have members that do it once a year and they look great with almost no effort.
