    I was wondering if anyone has chrome 355 stock rims. I have seen 348, 328, 308, and 360 stock rims chromed, but I haven't for a 355. I was wondering how they looked. Some don't like them, but I think it makes the rims look better, especially on a 348. So if you have pics please post them.

    don't like it on any car at all. even the new Viper on which chrome is standard (?). The only wheels that should be chromed, IMHO, are wire Borranis.

    Depends on which F wheel for me (and to some extend the coachwork color). For the lighter-spoked wheels (like 355) it's more acceptable, but on the heavy-spoked Magnesium wheels (or Magnesium look alikes) it's just too bulky for chrome IMO (but I do prefer a more silver, rather than grey, paint finish on the Mag wheel style).

    Oddly enough, whilke I dislike chrome wheels on 99.99 % of cars, they look fantastic on 1984-91 928's with the flat dish wheel style.

    Wow! According to the poll not to many people like chrome rims. For me I think it makes the car look flashier, more exotic, but that's just my taste.

    Chrome looks bad on F Cars. Unless you are getting an Escalade with 26" rims or a rice rocket, stay away from chrome!
