Default 2002-2004 stock SSEi wheels are chrome plated - correct?

Hi,

I am looking for a quality, long lasting wheel sealant to use on my wheels.

It is my understanding that the stock wheels for the 2002 SSEi where chrome plated, and not chrome - correct?



Thanks as always!

You are correct. The wheels are chrome plated. Also, chrome is a plating...all the time. The term chrome wheels is just short for chrome plated wheels. Make sense?
