I think it wouldn't look good. The stock finish on the wheels couldn't be better. IMO it's the key thing that gives the car its uniqueness. The wheels are small...chroming them will make them look smaller. Then again this is just my own opinion. You may like the chrome.

I've never seen an instance where chrome wheels improved the look of a car, too garish. Polished wheels I can tolerate, but generally a good paint or powdercoat color is going to give the appropriate look for this type of car.

Watch out with black chrome though.

:l

We sale lots of wheels and about 50% of the time the customer uses the wrong stuff to clean the wheels.

Mild soap and water... basically anything you would put on the body of the car is good enough.

Chrome cleaners have mild acids in them at times and should be avoided.

...this goes for all PVD wheels. (most reps tend to be PVD coated when in chrome or black chrome)

;)

I actually like both! I would have to see each of them on the car.

You left out the part that mentioned "V" models.

:l

So they will fit on all non Vs including V-sports.

Look at the offsets... they are switched around but they are correct in their individual wheels.

I deal with OE wheels quite a bit, don't really buy these v sport wheels but I will let them know that they have the offsets in the incorrect place so they can correct it.

Individual wheels listings...
Front 18x8.5 is32

Rear 18x9.5 is46

The OEM sizes and offsets are...
Front: 18x8.5 is32
Rear: 18x9.5 is46

...these are the numbers I saw on my wheels when I removed them to measure some 20s onto the car.

Ok cool, great if they fit. I had this sinking feeling that something went wrong in the replicating process. I read it as 2 different issues. No V3s and no other Brembos.

Yeah I get that but for some reason the v-sports are over looked so much that even the replica guys forget about them when listing.

:p
