    Bought some used rims from an 03 DTS.. Insides are aluminum....using them for winters on my 06, seemed like better quality back then!! The 06 rims are steel on the inside.

    Re: How are your optional chrome rims holding up?

    [QUOTE=teckguy;10721537]I looked at ........................that were flaking on the outer faces. The car I bought with only 40,000 KMS has never seen winter and has perfect chrome but suffered from blistering paint on the middles of the inside of the rims. ..................What gives with GMs paint/chrome process on these rims?

    You mentioned that the car you bought with only 40,000 KM has never seen the winter (snow/salt). You mean to say that you acquired your vehicle from the sunny south or you have recently moved to Greater Toronto Area. So, where did the blisters come from?

    Re: How are your optional chrome rims holding up?

    The bottom line is they don't make them like they used to. I don't have Chromes with my DTS, but my old 99 SLS had Chrome wheels that looked brand new with 194k miles on them. I have Alloys on my DTS and I'm looking to buy new wheels cause the corrosion on these things just kills me. Maybe I can buy old 70's Cadillac hubcaps for them. They would probably last longer. lol.

    Inside blisters were stone chips.... Yup 40k from a 92 year old... Garage stored all winter and is absolutely perfect shape... Not a scratch or dent.....inside smells like new to.... Nicest used car I've ever owned.
