Not sure on that one. OZ makes a lot of wheels that we don't carry or are not familiar with. Its also a possibility that someone had them chromed by someone after they were purchased.

Chrome should be available in the US, I´ve seen it on their website http://www.ozracing.com/usa/home.php

Not overhere in Europe though, I polished mine to mirrror finish, that way there also lighter then the chrome ones...:D :D

Hope that helps...

How did you do this? Could I do this to my silver painted Visions? Im planning on doing something to my rims this winter. So I got about 3 months to do something.

You have to get the paint removed (Dont know what they call it in english) so the wheel becomes bare metal (in its rough state) then you can start polishing with an abrasive substance which im sure you ll find in any hardwarestore, and then its just elbow grease till you get a perfect mirror finish and an even one too...

hope that helps

P.S. you could also take it to a shop that does wheel refurbishments they should be able to machine the spokes and out lip etc which could give an e46 M3 OEM 19" effect if you like, or you can then do the harder parts yourself where the machine cant get to....

have fun
