I originally planned on getting the 20" alloy wheels. But when I saw them on the car, something just didn't look right. My wife finally pointed it out to me. The dull, satin finish of standard alloy wheels clashes with the shinny chrome accents on the car. Look at the window trim, door handles and side turn signal plate. All are either highly polished aluminum or chrome. The chrome tech wheels accent these areas.
and i did the exact same thing, and the salesman and my wife looked at me like i was nuts. the salesman even didn't want me to upgrade! He was the one who then pointed out, "but the alloy wheels DO match the satin finish on the roof rack, which the chrome doesn't".
at that point i just withered and stayed with the alloy's.
If you check the 2012 SRX sales brochure they state the choices
"20" x 8" 7 spoke chrome-tech aluminum wheels. The 18 " wheels are identified as painted aluminum or ultra bright aluminum wheels. The other 20" wheel is described as bright machined aluminum with light Argent Metallic accents. End of quote. No false advertising as I see it.
