Polished 19" Wheels or Chrome?

Hey all,
I am trying to decide between the $470 upgrade for polished 19" wheels. Has anyone seen the polished 19's. Do polished wheels in general give out much more of a shine then silver alloys? I am a huge chrome fan and thinking of just getting custom chrome 5 spoke 19's once i buy the car. Any help would be appreciated.

polished wheels are very shiny, and you could continue to polish them up and make them look as good as chrome, on my old car i had polished wheels, and everyone thought they were chrome.

Thanks for the info! that's what i wanted to hear. It will save me some $$. Now, just to see what the actual polished 19's look like on the car. I am borderline upgrading to RS, but just don't think I need the 20s if the 19s will look good on the car. I have not been able to find any dealers in my area to accept my supplier pricing.

You can keep them looking like chrome if you dont have a job! Polished wheels look great when they re clean and are more affordable but ther is a reason...A LOT of elbow grease. I've had several and will never own again cause I just have time for all of the weekly or more polishing. They can look just as good but for me Id rather pay for the chrome good luck
