I also like machined wheels, I have for spring / summer are machined, I thought to take a different style for winter to change, it's hard to make the right choiceFWIW, all black never stays looking great in the winter. I have always LOVED the machined/black version that you posted and that would be my vote!
I also like this choice, but it is expensive and I have other priority currently ... A machining costs 200€/rim so 800€ for 4 (this is the price I paid for my Polestar 20"), personally I don't want to spend so much.Keep the tradition, black and machined face.
Yes I live in the north of France (Hillsides of Champagne 🍾), and we have snow and ice at times so they regularly salt our roadsI prefer the look of the machined face, but for winter wheels the powder coat would be the more durable option. Do they salt the roads in France in the winter? If so I would worry that that, even with a good clear coat after machining, the road salts would manage to get under the clear eventually and corrode that beautifully machined face. Powder coat still looks good, appropriate for winter wheels.
