Default 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.
