Chrome factory wheels - Solstice.
« on: October 31, 2014, 11:07:15 AM »
Were chrome versions of the factory polished aluminum rims available on the Solstice? My Sky has them, but they are a different spoke style (thinner spokes). I like the stock rims, but wish I had them in chrome instead of polished aluminum. Pics?

You know, I couldn't remember whether or not the Sky wheels were available in Painted Silver, and my computer that has that info on it is undergoing EOM backup as I write this.   Thanks, Sly Bob, for the memory jog!

EDIT:  Yes the painted, polished and chrome wheels were available on the Sky as well.

:rofl:

That is kind of what I guessed.

Hmm, backup is complete.  A quick reboot and I can be back on the maching with all the info.

Again, thank you.
