i have seen thoes before, along with the 2000 SLE and SSEi, crosslace version. I think the wheel that looks the best is the 92-99 Crosslace Chromed

Chrome? I thought those were alloys.

most any chrome wheel is a alloy wheel. The chrome is just a plating over the wheel

Those are awesome. Price is VERY reasonable IMO. If I had a Bonneville now I'd be willing to put my bid on those -those in chrome look almost as good as chrome torquestars.

Price doesn't seem TOO bad, but if they were mint I'd buy them for $400. I wouldn't get them in the condition they're in (until I saw good pics at least), especially with one wheel with scratches and one with a chip in it. He sold some other rims that had in the description "air bubbles in the chrome." I wonder if the chrome plating on his rims are good quality

My parents got some chrome OE rims for their 03 Monte Carlo SS. Same rims they have now, just chromed. They got them from ebay, not sure if it'* the same guy in that link, but the guy said there were no blemishes, and when my parents got the rims, there was a 1/4 chip/dent right in the middle of one of the spokes. The only reason my parents kept them was becasue they got them for a cheap price (they didn't tell me how much)....and probably because it would have been a PITA to return them.
