Touché. Well done!

Bottom line: Do what you like, hell with everyone else, LOL

And I was soooo looking forward to iridescent pink, but that wasn't on your list, so I guess they're out!

Re: '15 Overland wheels

We thought we needed the Jeep this weekend to go over the Cascades so we put a set of Dean Wintercat SST studded tires (255/65-18) on the OEM rims to be ready instead of waiting for the wheels to come in. Well, the wife and Jeep are sitting comfortably at home while the AWD300C with Firestone Winterforce tires and I made the 300 mile trip.

+1....I love the Spider Monkeys but for the very same reason MOF mentioned, I won't buy them.

They would drive me crazy!

I, like you, only hand wash my cars too, except in the winter when I go to a touchless car wash because of the underspray they do. Really helps keep the road salt & chemicals at bay.
Those spider monkeys aren't bad at all actually, IMO. Kind of thinking about a set for me.
These, by comparison, are a bit of a pain to clean & wax.


Me, I look at this kind of stuff as "therapy". I like detailing my cars and always keep them looking good. Labor of Love you might say...

I had very similar wheels in the past and found them fairly easy to clean with soft spoke brush. My biggest gripe about busy wheels is I can't clean the barrels without removing the wheels. With the Goliath's I can stick my hand in between the spokes. Brembo's get in the way in the front so I need to move the car a foot backwards to make sure I get everything.

Re: '15 Overland wheels

Great point. On the beetle, the barrels only get cleaned in the early winter when I swap them out to my snow tire/wheel combo - still can't get to the barrels of those either, lol
I do like easily being able to get to them with my stock wheels though.

...Although, I think I could get my hand in the larger spaces of the spider monkeys and pull my wheel towel through OK. Just a little more work...
