Mine aren't and it's bugging me.. Rims and tires are to me what shoes are to women - it's one of the first things I notice about the car. It's definitely a good way to get to know the driver.

No, I don't care. I care about a mechanically sound and properly maintained vehicle that won't let me down. Pretty much a waste of time cleaning tires and rims around here.
Do they make it go faster? ;P

I have no hubcaps and my tires are typically covered in a thin layer of mud. I live down a gravel road half the week typically & the hubcaps fly off driving down it.

Can't please everyone. But if it's any constellation, I agree with HeavyHemi.

Depends on the weather. When it's rainy season it don't bother cleaning the rims and tires. Also, the weather here can change very rapidly.

But I'm driving an SUV so a little mud on the tires makes it looks sexy
