    I think they only came in chrome on the 96/97 WS6's. After that they're just polished with a clear coat over them.

    nope, i bought a brand new set from slp in 2000. chrome was an option from 97 till they stopped putting them on the cars in what... mid 01?

    i picked up the set from SLP for under $1k and that was a great deal in those days. wish i could get a new set again

    now you have me wondering if the chrome ones i got from slp were left over from 96/97

    I thought they were polished and cleared with the newer style fatter spoke, Speedline, wheels.

    The thinner spoked 17's were chrome. Usually referred to as the 98-00 WS6 wheels.

    Question Schott wheels

    Thx for trying to help; I was considering some I force wheels from Schott. They have them in 17x8 and 17x10. Will my stock 275/40/ZR17 tires fit a 17x10 rim ok? I think I have read on here that they will. Appreciate the info. thx

    They should. I believe the factory WS6 wheels are 17x9.5.

    Factory wheels are 17x9". Not 17x9.5". The 98-00 WS6 wheels are not chrome. They are polished aluminum with clear over them.

    Is this for sure? I knew the speedlines where polished but always thought the 98-00 ones were chrome.

    98-2000 were polished. SLP sold some aftermarket chrome ones for a while.

    The chrome wheels were 16" on most of the other birds. WS6 cars got polished 17" as a part of the WS6 package. Also the thin spokes went into the early 2001 model year.
