I have been a quiet reader of the board for some time now, and finally I have just purchased a 2001 spectra Blue IS. I am still waiting for the car to come in (today i hope).
At any rate, i have been given the option of having either the polished rims or the chrome lexus IS rims at no additional cost.

my question is this, does anyone know of any drawbacks to the chrome wheels? (peeling, flaking, etc)

any input as to the better of the two would be appreciated.

go with the understated polished rather than the OVERstated chrome. I think if you really want chrome, get an aftermarket set...

No additional cost!!?? You bastard! (just kidding.)

I saw the chrome and the polished on two SBM IS's at the Seattle dealer and the polished looked MUCH better with the blue, the chrome just looked too akward on the blue, although it looks good on silver, white, yellow, and even the green.

But that's MY opinion, so do what looks best to you of course.

I want to get polished for my SBM, but can't spend money on them right now. I'll probably get them within the next year though.
