Unless you plan on rock climbing with em LOL I wouldnt worry about rocks scratchin up the chrome. Lip on them would get about as dirty as any other chrome rim. Really all depends on what brake pads you have if you will get alot of brake dust etc.

Having a rim with a lip is a must on a big RWD car. Leave the flat wheels for the FWD's. The lip isn't the issue when cleaning the wheels. It's having a wheel with a bunch of spokes (not wires). They're a lot more time consuming.

just make sure when you clean them you get every spot cause if you continue to miss areas eventually it will build up and make the rims look trashy and it will be hard to get those spots off, mainly old brake dust

Well, I've had some problems with rocks and big lipped wheels. I noticed small nicks and dents around the inside of the lip which I could only explain by small rocks getting in there and bouncing around a few times. Nothing harsh enough to chip the chrome, but noticeable from a couple feet away.
