I hated that the stock wheels were not chrome - or polished. Silver just wasnt cutten it - especially with a 11 second car!

I love the new look - what a difference!

Best looking rims for the goat yet.Nothing beats the chrome 17's.Looks great and lets you use a tire with an actual sidewall.

Aren't you afraid of chrome peel or whatever damage may occur from salt this winter?

afraid of that NO.... the car is almost already for the winter sleep - till april that is. Car will NEVER see salt.. and will NEVER see rain for that matter..

car is only for nice sunny days - believe me - the way the chrome was applied, I have little fears of it peeling.

Lug nuts do not have caps - they are chrome lugs.

I bought the wheels from a fellow GTO owner in Ohio. CalChrome.com does the chroming and will do so for around 900 shipped.

I like em too!!! Just get metric locking chrome nuts and don't mess with the lug caps. Will look great and will be much harder for the crooks to remove. I bought my GTO new with the chrome wheels.....and it is a DEALER option. I've never seen chrome 18's...that is what I would like to see.
