For those of you that are running Team III "polished'' wheels, how well have they held up? Do you find yourself having to polish monthly to keep them looking good? I think I want to go with chrome wheels, but not finding what I want in the size I want. Any thoughts/comments regarding polished wheels, Team III or not would be much appreciated.

It depends on what look you want of course. Personally I don't care for chrome wheels on Cobras. The Team III wheels do take maintenance and if you are showing your cat, I suspect quite a bit of upkeep.
Mine is a driver and I polish only a couple of times a year. I like the look,

Built to be driven. The mission statement for the build was - build a comfortable and fun long distance driving machine that is capable of spirited street driving and the occasional track outing.
I agree with Arch. It really is a different look. I also prefer the polished aluminum look, but it's for sure more upkeep. Mine have held up perfectly, but they've spent most of their lives in my garage so far.
It all depends on how much you use your car and the conditions you drive it in. Mine wont see rain so they stay pretty nice to begin with. It doesn't hurt to put a coat of polish on them every now and then. I'm a detail freak so every so often they come off and the back sides get cleaned and polished too. I really think they make the car.
