    certainly not fancy rims but i thought you'd like this. chrome definitely looks good on white.

    Might be able to get a better shine if you take it to a place that polishes aluminum professionally. Clean aluminum>chrome

    Have you considered having them media blasted and dipped in chrome? It would probably be around the same price as getting a new set since the wheels are so big on these cars. Just my .02 worth.

    My wifes white vert had the factory chrome wheels. I thought they looked great.
    In my opinion, chrome is better than polished. Much nicer to just wipe the wheels off with windex and a towel.
    Aluminum wheels need the polish ball and 3 hours of your time,,,I'm too old for that shit anymore No fun driving the car if I have to spend half the day cleaning it up.
    For that reason, I just don't do polished aluminum anymore.

    I agree with that.

    Until that chrome starts flaking off.

    I've heard that before, but I have never once had chrome flake off any wheels I've had.

    So I don't know what's going on there. Maybe cheap wheels???

    Okay, I read the first post and that's all I needed to hear.
    The previous thread got locked

    What in the world are you fella's doing to get a thread about white camaro's locked?? I know we have some real winners here,,,but damn,,,we can't talk about white camaro's without termoil???

    Maybe this will help this thread along,,,,here is a pic of my wifes old vert before it was totalled. I've always like the white with chrome wheels,,,very classy look. I think the tan top sets it off.
