    Refinishing OEM rims

    This is my first post on here. Been reading a lot over the past 2 hours since I've found the site.

    Bought my 2009 Cadillac CTS back in May and I love it, BUT I really want to have the stock chrome rims just don't want to spend the $$$ buying them haha. So I've thought about sanding them in stages and throwing a polish on them, then clear coating. I have a 1997 Pontiac Trans Am WS6 that I did this on and it came out perfect, but my concern is the center caps that cover up the lug nuts. They are plastic, so I can't make them chrome obviously. Do they sell a chrome set that fits these wheels AND I want the Cadillac emblem on them too.
    If anyone has already done this already please post pictures!

    Thanks!

    I've been looking for a center cap to fit that would match it after it's refinished, no luck though.
    I really want to do this, just cant without getting center caps.

    Try Detroit Wheel and Tire, they may have what you are looking for.

    Is this the style wheel you have?
    If so, go with the Alsa cans.... http://www.alsacorp.com/products/kil...llerchrome.htm

    If you have a 2010 or newer, switch to the CTS-V black center caps. They will look great with you polished wheels.

    I agree. The black CTS-V caps are the way to go.
