I usually go with chrome but the polished might look great with the grey color. I'll wait to vote until pics are up...

crome or bust. i think crome looks good on almost any car but it depends on the rim also.

they will be15'*...I am leaning toward the silver ones, the other ones draw too much attention to me. Keep posting your thought though.

Rim # 2 appears to be all chrome plated by photo, where does the ultimate paint come in? Rim # 1 looks to be machine finish (spokes), however between the spokes it appears to be painted gray & whole rim is clear coated. I would prefer rim # 1 on your particular bonne. I would put 16" rims on though. The stock wheels with wheel covers, are they 15'*?

it looks like chrome, but they call it "ultimate finish". I just got new tires. Also, the speedo is set for 15'*, and it would require a new PCM to change that. That would cost way to much $$. I am leaning toward the #1.

I've said it to.
.
and I like the non chrome for your ride.
.
I think Chrome looks best on darker color cars.
Maroon, Black, Dark Blue.etc.
