Not voting, because I want my wheels to have both polished sections and black sections. See my avatar.

Yeah same, I think they will look good since the Camaro team put them on the exterior appearance package!

I've always loved the look of chrome, but I voted for polished because I wanted the reduced weight of aluminum. If I could find the perfect black wheel, I just might jump all over that for my black SS. But the reality is, I'm going to leave the stock wheels on the car. I think they're beautiful, and they look right on this car! If I do change, they're going to have to be REALLY light in weight, otherwise why waste the time or money!!!

Or Gold plated!

I've had black, I've had machined aluminum, I've had chrome, I've got to have me some polished wheels this time.

I went with the chrome for this look. They say they're polished but from the picture they appear chrome.

Started with midnight silver, changed to polished, have now decided to go back to midnight after seeing them on some RJT pics. Does that mean I can vote twice??

Nah ... just means I can't make up my mind

All it means is that there is no wrong answer. Whichever way you go will be the right decision.

Midnight for me. I'm going for as low maintenance as possible plus I'm cheap and don't want to spend that kind of money for rims. Black doesn't look good imo with Rally Yellow plus it shows dirt too easily. Chrome and polished show dirt too easily for my liking so that knocks these out.

ive had alot of different wheels finishes and ive realized that polished and chrome are a hassle to keep clean. especially the polished because it is more likely to pit if not taken care of regularly. painted wheels are very easy to keep clean. all you need to do is put a little wax on and take it off and they look brand new.
