Which wheels should i keep on my car??? I have the premium polished but i feel like they only look nice when right out of the car wash and the pattern is kind of lame. Looks like Chrysler wheels. The non polished I think look a bit nicer all around. Any opinions???? I want to swap but am getting mixed reviews. Love the car so far though. Much nicer than my CTS coupe.

I think the ones with the polish finish are going to look awful after the first winter and I dont like the pattern. Yes the chrome look is nice with the black paint but the other wheel option has a much cooler design.

Get what you like. Of the 2013-14 factory wheels I think the machined 18" look the best without considering the car BUT the polished aren't far behind. But I feel the polished wheel design fits the rest of the car's styling better so would slightly prefer them for overall appearance. HOWEVER, the polished wheels are a LOT heavier than the machined wheels so I have those on my car.

I have the coupe and was going to get custom wheels but the factory oem painted ones that the car came with are starting to grow on me so I'm going to probably wait good while before changing them. They can be polished up real good and do reflect a decent amount of sunlight to make them shine more than just normal aluminum wheels that come standard on most vehicles.

But , I agree also with the poster who said he preferred chrome with black. My other half has a black Lexus with chrome wheels and they really stand out and look fabulous on her car.

The pictures really don't do justice for the look of the chrome rims on black. I have the chrome on tricoat black and think they look great.

I got the machined wheels put on and got a rear deck lid installed. The car looks really nice with the subtle spoiler.

I have the stock (2015 Lux ATS Coupe) wheels and have hit a curb...:rant2: Do ant of you have the part number, or can tell me how much these wheels are from the dealer? Once I replace the skinned up wheel I will be looking to get NON runflat tires... These suck, hard ride, NO sidewall protection of the wheel... etc.
Thanks!

The design of the polished 18" wheels goes slightly better with the ATS styling, IMO.

BUT the machined 18" wheels are better looking wheels, not taking what car they are on into consideraton, IMO.

Of course looks aren't everything. The polished wheels are VERY heavy, while the machined ones are actually lighter than the 17s.

I have polished 18"s the dealer ordered with my car, I wish he left the original wheels on the car.

I like your stock wheels and I like the wheels in the first post above if anyone wants to swap I would be up for it.

I'm not chromie wheel guy
