The finish should be powdercoated and fairly tough,i would not worry about them rusting.keeping them clean should help.

Everything rusts with time here in Michigan. It all depends on how you care for them.

Yes they rust, you kind of answered your own question though. They are steel. :rolleyes:

Mine are just about 2yrs old, they are rusting where the wheel weights used to be.

If you are worried about rust on a black rock crawler rim...no offense, but you should choose a different hobby.

What do you expect for 40 bucks a rim.

LOL, I agree, rustoleum works wonders for covering up all kinds of stuff. :)
