Maybe it's that the pics don't do them justice or i'm really partial to the polished ones but I don't really care for the color. It almost looks like they got a light coat of brake dust all over them. I would imagine that the people that don't know what they look like stock wouldn't notice though. As long as you're happy with them, is all that really matters.

I gotta say, your right, the polished ones are pretty awesome. I really like these however. Either way, the SS type wheels that come on the new Camaro's are some of the finest looking OEM wheels I've seen on any car. I usually alway's go to the after market for wheels when I'm putting togeather a ride but honestly, I havn't seen a Camaro with any after market wheel's that looks as good as the stockers, thats why I went this route.................Rich

Have you had any issues with scratching? I find they scratch VERY easily! :(

I had my OEM stock wheels exchanged for US Wheel's "bright" chrome. My car is stored in the winter, is not a daily driver and I wipe the wheels off after every ride. No sign of scratching yet.

I took one of their black chrome wheels off the shelf, went outside, set it next to my OEM wheel on a block so that it was at the right height, stood back about 15-20 feet and looked at it for the longest time in the bright sun.

Conclusion....that maybe you, but it ain't me!

Thought the finish was guaranteed for 5 years 100K miles is this not the case?
