The tires are too wide to fit the usual car washes.
Not to mention those types of car washes will screw up your paint job.

Well nobody warned me and this is one of them that doesn't have the rubber pads or brushes. I've never run one of mine trough those cause of scratches and damage but thought I'd try this one out.

i thought about that but wanted to keep my 5 spokes original so down the road i will have both wheels incase i ever want to switch back to the polished. plus, it makes for good value in the future if i ever needed to sell the car

I'll see if I can get some before and after shots uploaded.
My ZL1 Came with a piece of paper showing a car wash with a big red circle crossing it out... Did everyone not get that? I just bought mine in Nov so maybe its a new warning.
