When I bought my car it had cobra rims on it. I bought swoopies but didnt have any negative effects that I can tell from the cobra rims.

Proper care? Not much you can do in that regard. Call it proper luck, and don't push your car too hard.

I've done it for several years on several GM cars with no issues.
