Our long-term 2014 Kia Cadenza Limited has fancy wheels, too fancy for my tastes.

    Chrome wheels, Hankook tires... yuk.

    Ugh, I would not like to clean those either as I'd jam my fingers everytime trying to get in between the spokes. No thanks.

    Not to mention ridiculously now profile tires

    Chrome + 100 spokes = LOSE. EVERY. TIME.

    Totally agree...although I also believe that chrome wheels should be abolished altogether...

    i like the style, but would like the overall package better in alloy. and, yeah, it would take about 5 minutes per rim to get those babies clean.

    IMO. Don't like the style and the cleaning would give me an headache.

    I like the aesthetics of them but agree that washing them would be a pain.

    Nothing wrong with Hankook tyres if you get the right ones.

    I'm especially concerned by how much the spokes of the wheel seem to protrude. Looks like a sure recipe for lots of curb scrapes. I've had chrome wheel and enjoyed them when they're inset from the tire.

    >Nothing wrong with Hankook tyres if you get the right ones.< While you may be right, how do we know which one is the "right one?" I bought a set of Kuhmo KR-21 because of positive reviews on Tire Rack. Immediately after installing them, I was horrified by how terrible they were. No traction. A few months later I took a loss on them and got a set of Micheline Primacy MXV4, which were terrific. I will always stick to Continental, Michelin and Bridgestone.

    Another reason I went out of my way to avoid the Technology Package/Limited.

    I have them on my Cadenza. Under a minute to clean. All gaps wide enough for a towel wrapped finger.
