    Not too shabby of a deal, considering what I had to give to get them as an LPO for my wife's 2012. To me, it makes the upgrade to the Performance or Premium a much sweeter deal. IMO they are still the best looking wheel on the SRX!

    the polished aluminum looks classy from the sideview , the spoke wheels look sportier and matches the 2013 grille, it's all good!

    When it comes to personal preference, everyone is right. I still prefer the chome as my first choice with the new polished aluminum as my second favorite.

    I agree... BTW: I happen to like your chrome wheels too...

    The one thing I like about the polished aluminum spoke rims is that I don't have to spend a lot of time wiping them down. However, the chrome rims I had on my 2010 SRX I needed to wipe them down after every wash (to get rid of the water spots) but then again I could say it is just a "small" inconvenience in order to keep the chrome wheels looking great all the time!

    Re: opinions

    My 2012 Gold Mist SRX Performance, originally had the Chrome Techs and was a long term loaner of the dealer before they sold it to me. At some point the Chrome Techs were damaged (curbed) and the dealer replaced all 4 with standard 18s. I didn't like the standard 18's much but I also didn't like the Chrome Techs....but I did like the 2013 polished aluminum like Marc has....so I replaced the 18s with the 2013 20" polished aluminum and so far I am very happy.

    We do have harsh winters here in Indiana so I am a little concerned about how to keep them looking great for many years to come...any ideas besides taking them off, I don't have room to store a set of winter tires/wheels.

    Chrome rims get my vote. That was one thing that sold me on the particular 13 we bought as opposed to some others on the lot that didn't have them.

    I hear you... That is what is great about the new 2013 Chrome rims is that they are a one piece wheel and not a two piece - chrome over plastic like prior GEN II years.

    At least if you ding or happen to hit the new chrome rims on the 13's the only thing that will happen to them is that you will get a small dent and it will not peel or flake off because of it.

    Re: opinions

    The chrome wheels are a true chrome, not chrome tech? I was at my dealer and I felt the spoke and behind you can feel a ridge along the outer edges of the back of the spoke as though it was again bonded plastic chrome covers? Can anyone confirm by looking behind?

    Thanks

    They are chrome. We didn't have any problem with our Chrome Techs, but we were extremely careful, and didn't put a lot of miles on the car. The 13 wheels are definetly chrome.
