Since I didn't want to wait to get a closer look on the dealers lot to be able to see the new 2012 20" rims I asked a good friend of mine to see if he could get me a better photo of the new finished 20" wheel. Soooooooooo I thought perhaps some of you might want to see it too. :shhh: :sneaky:

For a change of pace I think I might just order this nice looking wheel on my next Performance SRX order. :yup:

Marc NY,

This is going to sound pretty dumb but . . . . I am looking at your photo and I am staring out the window at my 2010 . . and I keep looking back and forth. What is the difference in the rims ?? Are mine and those made of different materials because to my eyes, they look very very similiar

Marc NY,

This is a dumb question . . . what is the difference between those and the 2010/11 20" wheels? I keep looking at your photo and out the window at my 2010 . . . They look very similar.

The new 2012 wheel now has a bright machined surface with painted accents. The previous version (your wheels) were an all painted wheel. Both are similar and both are great looking wheels... just a newer look to the 2012 wheels.

great pix Marc! I too like the bright finish w/dark accents. I might have chosen over the chrome-tech, due to the tender nature of the chrome finish....... Good to have friends @ the factory. LOL

Photos #1 & #3 help to show the new rims up closer with the newer machined finish look on the 2012 SRXs. The new rims will definitely stand out more when viewed in bright light... and will definitely cast a nice reflection. :)

FYI: I loved the look of the chrome rims on my 2010 but again you have to remember those chromes rims are very very delicate and any kind of small hit will cause the chrome to peel and separate from the plastic... and are VERY expensive to replace. Don't forget the harsh winters up north with all the heavy salt can take a huge toll on the chrome finish too. :(
