    Chrome or stainless steel (SS) rims

    Looking at some trailer rims found 2 models I like one chrome and the other SS..I'm dropping in salt water, the question is will the chrome go to sh-t fast or should I stay with SS.

    Stainless or aluminum, and rinse well after each dunk.

    You want clear coated aluminum. You do NOT want chrome.
