RRC alloy wheels

Anyone has some pics of a 90 with RR classic alloy wheels ?
I wonder how it looks. I may get a set for cheap and could use
an extra set of wheels so any feedback on those wheels is welcome.

Are they strong? Might be good for a trail set that you could have your trail tires on and not worry about scuffing up your rims on rocks. (Chris that "garage" looks awesome).

I think they are a great trail wheel since they are almost solid and have not protruding spokes. Mine have not been babied. They are also cheap as acorns if you ruin one.

Seems that with the right tire on them they doesn't look too weird.

I've always thought these look great. Hard to find for some reason over here compared to how much they're disliked in the US.

Can you run them bared, no paint on them ?
I mean how the alloy will age ?

Seems the 3 spokes have a pretty substantial bead.

A coat of paint can't hurt the longevity. I polish the bead surface up before mounting new tires and use plenty of bead sealer as well.
