Car coming with wrong rims, what to do?

So after 6+ months of waiting my car has been built (23580) . Like all good Camaro5 member I check out the VIN number and run the window sticker.
Well.. the price is off so I carefully check the window sticker to find out that the car was built with 19" polished rims, not what I ordered which was the standard 2LT 19" painted rims.
Now I am not a big rim guy, thus why I did not order any of the optional rims.

What should I do? Does anyone with the 19" polished rims really like them? I will not wait for another car, just not sure how much of a big deal to make of this. While it is only $470, the rims are nothing that makes any difference to me.

Just take it the way it is and swap it out later if you choose.

The ones he's getting cost more and most think they are better but I think the Midnight silver is better than the Polished wheels.. hence why I didn't do Polished...

Yep, more money for the polished. Rims are not my thing, so I didn't order any extra or better rims. Now the car has them. Maybe I can get the dealer to sell them to me at invoice (since I did not order them or want them).

I also did not have much luck using the search to find pictures of the polished 19" rims (as most members either have an SS or the RS package).

No no no....




You have just recieved a Free Set of Rims.




They ****ed up = you win. They may need a little argumenative convincing but you won.

I seriously doubt the dealer is going to eat the price. He may at best offer them to you at dealer cost. The polished look is a good one. If they money doesn't bother you take them and go enjoy your car!

Like most people, I don't like to give away $470, but it is not a deal breaker for me. I don't expect the dealer to eat it, maybe they can sell them at invoice.

Those 19 inch polished rims are beautiful! Much nicer than what you what have got. Be happy because you are going to love them!

I agree. Would not be a deal breaker for me.

back outta the order all together and vow to never purchase another GM vehicle because once again.......GM Failed.........DAMN U GM.....

seriously......the polished are nice. only issue i have with them is they're as polished as they're gonna get cuz GM clear-coats them. however, this equals zero maintenance.......

over the winter, i am prolly gonna find (or have made) a set of 20 x 9 fronts and 20 x 10 rears in a chrome LS7 style. oh how i wish the Neeper N5 was still around in a 20!

anyhow........don't sweat it. if it's really an issue, just tell ur dealer now so he can order the correct ones and swap em' out for ya. but i would go with the polished.

I'm not sure why this point has been over looked? Three possible cases here. You turned in an order to your dealer indicating you wanted polished wheels. Knowingly or by error. In which case you should pay for and accept the wheels.
Or,the dealer made the mistake entering your order or heard you wrong? If this is the case the dealer should do what you want them to do. You want the wheels and will pay for them,or order you what you want and they eat the 470.00 and keep the polished wheels.
Last is an error from GM. In that case you get what you want like the previous.
This really should be a no lose situation for you unless it was your error. In which case like I said you get polished wheels and they cost you 470.00.
Good luck.

So far, that is 78 bucks a month, while you have been waiting..............and going down.

If you are NOT a rim guy, then what is the issue?

I think you are mistaking these rims for the LS rims the but ugly black standard rims... 19" LT are the same as the polished ones without the polish.

I believe the "polished" is a 20" rim, an option to the RS package on the 2LT trim. You must mean the 19" bright aluminum availible for the 2LT. I know they're the same price ($470) and the styles are different but I dont know how much the actual finish is different.

If you have it written in your purchase agreement that you didn't order them, they can't make you pay for them. They will have the option to just give them to you for the same price or swap them out for the correct rims that were on your order. It should be a win, win for you.

The Z28 Alum pattern? I disagree I find them awesome they are a heritage cue to the 3rd and 4th gen Z wheels.

I'd keep 'em on the car. IMO, the polished 19s are sweet- I even thought about them for my SS.....
