Hello Im New here and got my 45th Anniversary on 4/12/2012 Its a 2LT RS. I love this car I was actually debating whether to get the 45th Anniversary vs. the Transformers Edition. I had to stick to the classic 45! I hope to soon be adding the GFX not sure yet.

My rims are plastidipped. You should try it yourself cause you sound on the fence, which is exactly why plastidip is so good. Don't like it; just peel it off!

I agree the car looks great with stock wheels, but when I started to black out my camaro I knew I needed to blackout my rims.

Also, are you planning on tinting your windows? If you tint your windows, definitely plastidip the rims or paint them. With no tint I think the rims should stay silver.

And my opinion, it needs tint... Therefore blacked out rims too...

I'm also on the fence about the MGP covers. I've seen a couple of pictures where the cover didn't completely hide the caliper so seeing it on a members car would be very helpful.

I purchased the MGP Caliper Covers for my 45th. When I got them, they did not work. The standard SS wheel has much more clearance than the 45th's wheel. The center hub (where lugs go through) is larger on the 45th wheel. The cover was digging into the rim.

I sent them back and they tried to cut a arch out of the center of the cover. This helped that clearance issue, but then the distance from the caliper to the spoke is very narrow. They say you need 2 quarters width of room and this wheel leaves about 3. However, the Brembo is not exactly parallel to the spokes, so they started rubbing. The vibration nocked it off of the caliper and it scratched the hell out of the inside of my wheel.

MGP said I must have installed it wrong. They had sent their "New" style clips, and to be honest they did not fit well, but I did get them seated. It scratched the Brembo while trying to seat the clips. I have these covers on my 2011 RS and they are great and I have installed them successfully before. They just do not fit the 45th.

I still have the full set in my garage. I have asked MGP to try to send me another set, they have never done so. I have asked twice for a refund, they have not provided it.

I will also say that MGP sold me a set for my 2007 Saab Aero, and they did not fit out of the box. They never refunded me that money either. I have given them over $500 for custom covers that did not work, and they do not stand behind their product. I would NEVER recommend them again.

Pitty, the ones on my RS help keep the wheel very clean and I would love them on my 45th, but they just stopped responding. AVOID them.

Picked up my 45th 2LT yesterday. Traded in my 2010 SIM for it. Love all the new features compared to my 2010 1LT.
