True.On normal wheels on the evo, they did become filled with snow and ice faster but they were much easier to clean because I can fit my hand and snow brush through the spokes. When I had the steelies on the focus, it did take deeper snow and longer time before the wheels became unbalanced. The issue after that was trying to clean the barrels of any built up snow/ice as there's no way for me to fit my hand, brush, etc behind the wheels. That probably won't be an issue though with a car with a larger wheel gap.
I personally didn’t have ever issues with steelies, but with 5 spoke etc. deep snow always creat issues if driving for some time through it.
