Default How common are these rims?

I've seen a lot of white on white, but haven't seen these green on green before, I was just wondering how common they might be. The color matches perfectly so I asume they came ythat way from the factory.
*Note* Yes those are leaves on the trees, I took this picture a couple months back

Actually the chromies were. To this day I've only seen 2 sets. One was on a 93 SSE parts car my old mechanic had, but the peeling, OH the peeling.
The other was on a mint maroon 92/93 SSEi on ebay 1-2 yrs back.

I was going to buy a 92 back just before I bought my Red 93, it too was the same medium garnett red with color matched rims and ONLY 48,000 miles on it..
I think the red must be decently rare to? However, blue is hands down the most rare.

Color match was standard on 92 and 93 models. Silver Aero-Lite (same ones that were color matched) were the upgrade in 92. 93'* SSE/i upgrade was gold or silver spokes.

I just saw an SSE yesterday with green wheels on green body. Pretty common around the Flint area.

There is one sitting here in the Orlando JY that is green with BLACK rims and Gold trimming...not sure if they are repaints, but look pretty good on green.
