i dont know exact difference either. but through speculation, american chrome rims do not look as sharp (laser cut), like japanese rims...im not saying it is actually laser cut, but the finish looks very sharp, in comparison to american rims.

I have a set of 18" Japenese chrome wheels on my 97 Cobra and they are not as heavy as an American chromed wheel. Because the Japanese chrome wheel is only on the outside of the wheel (look closely at the pic...you can see the silver painted part of the wheel in the back half).

Hope this helps.
