    I was parked near the nuclear power plant for a few hours and when I came back, this stick insect was eating the paint off my aluminum wheels.

    Would steel wheels be more durable and less tasty?

    I got sick of OEM wheel finishes giving up on my 06 and went steel with beauty rings. Quick shot of semigloss black once in a while for 'brand new wheels'. They can be had for around $50/wheel. Shipping is what makes or breaks a deal on them.

    Nuclear power plant? It wasn’t eating. It was gathering nesting material. Big battle with Godzilla next month.
