Yes, there are 3 kinds. Silver, graphite, and chrome.

Graphite has been discontinued. It is best, IMO.
Chrome might be simply a "Dealer Option".

Graphite has not been discontinued per Lexus website.
It has been for us. Cali people can still get those.

There is no such thing as "Limited Series."
However, there was a "SportDesign" for 2003. No chrome wheels were offered, not for our area, at least.
