    I like the lighter color. You don't have to be right next to them to see the details. Just my $0.02.

    Have you seen the '18 RAV4 Adventure? They have glossy black/gray wheels that actually look fantastic. I guess it's the new style now not only for Toyota, but other manfucturers as well.

    Wouldn't it be better to choose a wheel with much less open face for winter or snow will get stuck and cause balance issues as well as brake temperature issues.

    I think the open face allows the snow/ice to get cleared. The only cases where I can recall seeing a lot of build-up of snow have been with very closed steel wheels, not with relatively open alloy wheels.

    I'm just worried about the rotors over time with an open face.
